Katie had invited me to run from her house to go cheer on a friend of Layla’s; Michaela at a Triathlon held at Almaden Lake Park. It was just over three miles away from Katie's house. I was hesitant at first because well, frankly I was scared. I was worried that all my aches and pains would return. I weighed the pros and cons of running in my head and decided to meet up with Katie and Layla and just run. Worst case scenario, I end up on a hospital gurney.
Luckily however, it was the best case scenario I could have asked for - I ran pain free for over 7 miles! It was my longest run in the last three weeks and I was on a cloud nine. Perhaps it helped that I had fabulous people surrounding me, but I had a blast. It was such a fun morning - Spectating all the hardcore triathletes, running, socializing, not to mention eating and drinking a fantastic post run breakfast and meeting some new cool peeps.
|It was a hot day! Doesn't help that we were right in the sun's glare. With Katie and Layla!|
In other news, I found out that I was denied by nuun to run Hood To Coast, but I am not upset. At least I tried right? And I am very happy and excited for all the awesome girls that did make it! Perhaps other cool things are in the cards for me and I can’t wait to see what those will be! For right now, I am busy being on the race committee for the inaugural Surfer’s Path Marathon and Capitola Half that will be held May 20th, 2012. It certainly takes a lot to put on a successful race event, and I appreciate the opportunity to be able to be behind the scenes and see how it all unfolds!
