All my running buddies bailed on me early this morning, so I headed down to Provo to do my long run. Ohhh...my legs were heavy. I saw Allie go by and gave her a cheer, but I was on the other side of the road and I wasn't sure if she heard me. I saw Jen Hughes and shortly thereafter, I saw Lily. I ran with her for a little over a mile. She did awesome but was ready to be done. I left her at mile 12. She's so great!
I ran to the finish line and chatted with friends. Then headed back up the canyon. Not very often do I get to see the lead runners come (because I am running the race). What an amazing experience....they make it look so effortless! I saw the lead marathon woman and her motorcycle escort....WOW!!!! I gave her a shoutout and she gave me a weak smile. Glad to know the elite get tired too :)
I saw Rachelle, Josse, Janae and Julie....ohhhh....it is so much better to cheer, than race :) Ha Ha! I know a lot of people had a hard run today....way to gut it out.
My overall time got messed up today. Too many stops and starts to cheer and I accidently stopped my watch at the finish line. My run certainly wasn't very fast today. I need to figure out my heavy leg syndrome! But I did end my run going up the 800 N on tired legs.
Stretch and foam roll and In N Out for lunch
Way to go UVHM/M finishers!
