About 2 months ago, my client/friend Jillian asked if I wanted to be part of a team for this run as they needed 2 more participants. Sure...I'm up for a cheap run and I'd done the course before and knew it was relatively flat. Insert happy dance!
I met Jill at the start line and we grabbed our swag bags from the team captain.,,there was even a water bottle and a small baggie of energy chews! Yum!!! (alas no pictures).

I immediately jumped up from my passed out position on the ground and ran back to wait for Jill. I wanted to run in with her in case she was hurting. This was her first race in 3 years and I was so proud of her. She looked amazing as she rounded the final corner and headed home...she was even smiling!!!
|I mean look at that smile|
She crossed the finish line with her own PB! Congrat's girl!!
|Pink was our team color - the color of lotus' apparently|
After the race, I quickly went home, changed and headed back out for another 10km. I have a half marathon in 3.5 weeks and it was long run Sunday. Gah....it was exhausting.
|I really need to knock off the fake grins.|
I'm struggling with eating after my long runs. My body just doesn't feel like doing it even though I need to in order to replenish my calories and restore my muscles. I've tried chocolate milk (everyone's favorite) but that REALLY doesn't agree with me after a long run. Does anyone have any suggestions??? With 18km on the schedule tomorrow, looks like I'll be taking it easy in the afternoon!!!
