Week eleven, day four
Yesterday was one of my favorite days in the training season – mock race day! We have a finish line, cookie medals, and the world’s best pulled pork barbecue with all the fixin’s afterward. But the best part about it for me is that Tony comes out to cheer my teammates and me on! Last year, he rode his bike around the lake and stopped a few times to wait for us to come by and yell for us. His bike was stolen a few months ago, so this year he came out and ran to meet us and then ran back in with us. We ran 13 miles, he ran about four. And thanks to him, I had to run up the last little incline that I usually walk – I decided if he had the energy to run up the hill so did I! So today’s post is a special shout out to my wonderful husband, who not only puts up with all of my running and early to bed Fridays, but got up early on a Saturday morning to drive out to White Rock, cheer on the team, and run me in to the finish!
