race day

this season of my running group finished in the carolina football stadium with all of us ladies and gents with medals hanging around our necks. pretty cool. less about the football stadium (go pack!) and more about the medals. my first running medal. definitely not my last.

there i am on the jumbo screen. in the red.

it was a huge race. 2200 participants. several others that raced but were not timed. i ran as a mentor to a fabulous woman. she inspired me and hopefully i inspired her. we definitely pushed each other. i loved when we were sitting in the bleachers cheering the other participants on she leaned over to my husband and said, “she was really hard on me, made me run down hills when it wasn’t our run interval and everything.” i smiled.
