The Short Story

Well, I finished :). It was....a learning experience (said in my teacher positive spin voice). I feel proud that I completed it, but Ed and I both learned that, while we love running together for weekend runs, doing a race together isn't the best choice. Poor Ed was just not mentally prepared to be a "back of the pack" runner and pushed me a bit too hard in the beginning. That, on top of too hard runs the last few weekends, meant that I was spent by the time we got to the "easy" last 4 miles, and essentially dragged myself to the finish (with Ed's help). 

Still, there were great moments, and I did love spending a day on the trails with Ed. And, getting to do this about 12 times over the 3ish hours of the race was pretty awesome:


Report cards/big meeting/field trip are all happening this week, so once I survive this week, I'll fill all of you in on the details :)
