Race Season Begins

Big 10 games were in town. I won’t complain about free tickets. I will complain about watching Rutgers v. Nebraska. Boring.

Probably the most exciting part was the halftime Big 10 baby race with each school represented. This had to violate some NCAA rule.

Best part, I love you Robbie Hummel!

As the weekend approached, it was time to put in some work. Previously.

I did a toughness pose-off with Sparty. I think he won. Coolest thing was as we were walking to the start line, Coach Izzo was walking by the Circle. I’ve seen him before. He’s quite noticeable. I elbowed CS and said “That’s Izzo.” As we passed by I said, “Hi Coach!”. He responded, “Boiler Up!” Awesome.

Least favorite part of the race. Totally kills the momentum.

I decided I needed a selfie. I’m a dork.

A look back.

Usually I recruit double digit participants to represent. My numbers are dwindling. My loyal 2016 crew.

Even the warm temps couldn’t keep WFD away. Got to use my flax seed mittens when I got home. I’m an old ass lady.

But only 6 seconds/minute slower than 2 years ago. Take it. Bonus note: 1st in my age group!!! So, let’s do it again the following week at my fav location. Previously. Hello Holliday!

Getting back into the running swagger, I was excited to race. This place just energizes me. It showed in my finish. 30 seconds/minute faster than last year. 2nd fastest pace ever for me there. Again, I’ll take it.
