ran today. the last run before my 5K this New Years, in which I hope to redeem myself from the Gallop for the Gravy in November. Let shope I feel less turkey like post race. It's questionable since I hear there are tons of hills….
Mid run I passed an older couple on the path walking. We exchanged pleasantires, and then all of a sudden the woman simply shouted out my name…Well, of course I had to stop. It was the parents of my Childhood friends Stephanie and Elizabeth. They walked with me for a while talking. I was 3 miles into the run and sort of brain dread, so I tried desperately to chat appropriately and answer the multitude of questions. FINALLY the man said, "Honey we have to tunr here, my knees can't do more" And I was able to resume running. I was glad to see them. I had not seen them in at least 10 years, so I am utterly surprised that Mrs. Weller remembered me at all. But I wish it had been at the very end of the run.
4.55 miles completed. Lets see what I do out at the fairgrounds.
