Today was a very, very special race for me for a number of reasons:).
It was a perfect running day and the sun was just coming up as we got started. The race course was through the UCF campus which is amazingly pretty :)
As usual with all Track Shack events, it was really well organized and attended. Here we are after the 5-miler and 1-mile walk ready for the second part of the race...
Me and "Fire Socks" in action...:)
Love running with little kids in the short race...
And kids at heart. I want to be just like her when I grow up:)
Lu knows how to make running fun :)
We laughed a lot and focused on having fun and just finishing...
The strategy paid off perfectly and I just stayed focused on each piece as the run unfolded. Before you know it - we were all done!!
I remembered eventually that I have a "locate my phone app" which put an end to our wandering aimlessly across campus parking lots. But you know what? I think we walked for about 4-5 miles extra! Which means we probably did a Half Marathon today. Totally awesome and exactly what I needed!!
