For me the hardest days are the rest days! I know you need them and it's not good for to just keep going and going but it still sucks!
OK, now for yesterday. We showed up and it was pouring! Yep we ran in the rain. 4 miles and we were soaked! If it hadn't been for my son Chase I probably would have skipped it. But he wanted to go so we went.
He had a little bit of a bad day, it wasn't his best run but he hung in there. I am always proud of him. As I said I would have skipped it if it wasn't for him.
As far as my race goes. Ha, I surprised myself I finished 2nd in my age group! No kidding! I ran it in 39:52 and it was good enough for 2nd! Now I need another race!
