Yesterday was my first race in over 3.5 months! This is the longest stretch that I have gone without racing in the past 3 years! I’m rested, recovered and ready to go! My plan for yesterdays run was to just go out and have fun! And that is exactly what I did! It was very enjoyable even though it was pouring rain and about 38 degrees. I told my wife that this is how I define ‘fun’ 🙂
As soon as the race started I was able to get right behind speedy Kathy Baril! SHe is a fellow JEREMY’S BOOTCAMP member. She had no idea that I was behind/shadowing her the entire way untill about 100 yeards or so from the finish. She kept a really good pace going the entire time! BTW…at mile 2 my shoe lace came untied and my shoe was nearly off the rest of the way. There was no way that I could stop. I wanted to stay the pace that Kathy set. I was pretty pumped to pull in 4th in my age group out of 15!
And…I beat her by a second 🙂 Till next time Kathy! 🙂
