Find the fastest looking swimmer and it's me. HA
2. This weekend is the Vermont City Marathon. This is the best race in the world. I am not excited about doing another half marathon but I am excited about VCM. It was great to bike and run on the bike path this week and get in the excitement mode for this race. I am doing the 2 person relay with Jameson, my son. Emily, my daughter, is running it too. So it is a real family affair. The crowd support for this race is unbelievable and so much of it is on my beloved bike path. Until this year when I have done the relay I have run the first half. This year Jameson wants to so I will do the second. I will miss running on Church Street - twice. I will miss the excitement of the start. I even like the beltway where you do an out and back and see everyone. Many people don't like this but I always do. I will miss doing it when it is cooler. But I will like running on the bike path and I will like finishing at Waterfront Park which I haven't done in a long time. I won't miss trying to find a good spot to watch the finish in the crowd. VCM - heat or not - I'm getting ready!
This is after the race last year.
I was having so much fun here. Jameson ran the whole
thing. I ran the half and at this point he was running
with me. Bliss. Two years ago.
Jameson ran the half with me and EM the whole
thing three years ago.
3. Guess what the next race is the 3 of us will race together? I could just as easily ask guess WHERE the next race the 3 of us will race together. It is Garden of the Gods Ten Miler in Colorado. Woot! Woot! This is a race I have wanted to run but generally my school gets out later than this year and I can't. I still wasn't going to but Emily signed up as she is near there for work and then she is staying with my friend. The two of them worked on me and I signed up and then Jameson jumped into the fun and is staying with a friend of his in Denver! This will cover many of my goals:
Race with family - CHECK
Race a new race - CHECK
Race in a scenic location - CHECK.
I had said I was overdoing it leading up to my triathlon (I am) but I couldn't resist this. I will do more than one triathlon this summer (gasp, I think) and life is too much fun to not participate when you can!
The day after school gets out I am heading to Colorado!
That's me in the pink on my last visit.
