This mornings 5K was fun. I managed a 30:20 on legs that felt and moved like lead from yesterdays Nooseneck 18K (did I mention it was hilly?) I'll take it. Nice course, the last up hill was torture, however it ends on a down hill, I just couldn't get my legs turning over quick enough to get there in under 30 minutes!! Some Domino's pizza delivery driver I'd make, eh? I have no idea where I placed, I think there was a 90 by my name. Pretty much how I'm feeling about now...
Michael did well with a 21:56 putting him 10th out of 160. Pretty cool to say I know such greatness! Nice to start to get to know all you local racers! Hope your races or runs or rides were excellent this weekend!
Very cool t-shirt:
There were a couple of young girls who put up a pretty good race with the old lady here. Always makes me smile I kept telling them to go go go. They ran and giggled and ran and giggled, so sweet.
Saturday is the Ice Age 1/2 trail marathon in La Grange WI. With a couple of long drives, taking some time to stop and see my family in MI and spoil my Nephew with a big bag of presents, it will be some forced rest days which I do need. I really really don't like to fly, I really really really like to take long car trips, so this works out well for me. As luck would have it one of my Cousin's is volunteering at the race and another friend lives in a nearby town! So not only will I get to run a 1/2 marathon on a beautiful trail I will get to see my family in MI, a Cousin, an Aunt, and friends!!!
Beth, who is going to nap now...
