As we receive the remnants of Hurricane Matthew, I thought it was a perfect time to cozy up to the laptop and catch up on some blogging! I sure do love the sound of a good rain storm!!
Last weekend, I had the awesome pleasure of being a pace bunny for an all women's run here in the city. We have an organization here called White Rabbit Pacing that organizes pace bunnies for any races that wish to have them. Even though many of my friends have paced with this group before, I have not had the chance. And I almost didn't this time. I'm dealing with some right shin/tibia issues right now that causes a lot of pain when running. An x-ray has been done with no stress fracture found, so up next is a bone scan. In the mean time, I taped up my leg...and stepped up to pace!!!
I chose to pace the 30 minute 5k in this run...one of stipulations of pacing is that you need to have run the distance at least 3 minutes quicker than your pace time...on a consistent basis. This allows you to chat with the group that follows you and keep them motivated.
Do you remember my half marathon speeding ticket back in July? Well....it just happens that this was the week that I lost my license...ya...really convenient. Thankfully my friend Jill stepped up and offered to get up at dark o'clock and drive me to the run!

Rain had started to fall and I knew it was going to be a wet one! As you can tell, the race director LOVES purple and it's always fun to see the tutu's and sea of purple running the roads. We were off right on time with closed roads and fantastic volunteers!

If you love running, and seeing people reach their goals...I highly recommend being a pace bunny for a race in your area!!
