So I just came to the realization that I pretty much already posted about this race yesterday on dailymile. Damn. Whatever... I'm going to write about it again. If you're not interested in reading about it, move on along : )
I've had this virtual race on my calendar for a couple of months now. A paid training opportunity came along and it was scheduled for the same day. I couldn't pass up the training. Luckily, the training got done an hour early which made me very happy... especially because that meant I got an another hour of daylight to run in!
As soon as I arrived home, I was ready to run. Sitting in an all day [boring] training made me anxious. Our friend, Phil, wasn't up to running with me. The thought of skipping my run did cross my mind. I kind of wanted a running partner. Surprisingly, my husband volunteered to run with me. We have never ran together before. It was really nice to share this experience with him. He still is not a fan of running, but enjoyed the quality time together.
I'm lame and didn't get a picture when we were done. Just as we were approaching the end of the run, I totally almost sharted! I left my husband, sprinted home, and made it just in time : )
