Now, as for Kyle--HE DID GREAT. I'm so glad he ran with me. I know he is pretty sore. (Not only are his legs sore, but his face is still a little sore from the wisdom teeth extraction) It's a little different when you have been training and running, but when you haven't ran, your body just isn't ready for it. He did it in a great time. (I was very impressed)
We took a picture before we left the house.
You can see it was an absolutely beautiful day. We have had rain, rain, rain the last few days. In fact, when I went to run the hills on Tuesday night I got SOAKED. But this morning was gorgeous. I love our park--it is so pretty. The course was not bad (just wish it had been a little shorter, but then it wouldn't have been 10K, would it ; )
Allan came and took pictures. Poor guy thought he had an interview at 11:00, so he had to come in a suit--turns out the interview isn't until 1 p.m. He got us at the starting line. My instructor, Kristin, and Kristi who also helps were at the starting line. I was explaining to them about my t-shirt fiasco. (Doesn't Kyle look thrilled???)
Right before we started--adjusted iPods and watches, etc.
Kyle took off and ran ahead of me which was fine. I didn't expect him to run with me. I told him when I run the race next year and the following year I will have this great memory ; ) Here he is on his first loop.
I ran a pretty good time--I was quite happy. My goal is always to finish the race standing up, smiling, and NOT LAST. I did it.
Sidenote: Kyle is speaking in our Ward tomorrow. What a great Mother's Day gift, eh ; )
