This is an inaugural race and looks like it only has a about 1000 runners, but they are going to try to set a record for the most cowbells. I just love it. It is about 4 hours from our house, so I immediately sent the link to Jim to say let's do this race. He crushed my dreams by telling me a half marathon just wouldn't cut it for the training he needs right now :( I'm bummed. I want to do this race. It's in 2 weeks, and I wouldn't be quite ready for it yet.....but I would be close enough. Oh well, maybe next year. Sounds like fun though huh?
In other news, I completed my first 10 mile run in a very long time. It went GREAT. I averaged exactly a 12 minute mile which was 10 seconds per mile faster than my 8 miler last week. It was a cool fall day in the mid 50s. It also rained about the last 3 miles, which made those last few miles pretty darn cold.
Jim and I are doing our first 15K race next weekend. It should be fun. We finish in the new Live Strong soccer stadium. I guess the stadium finishes are the new "it" thing in racing.....yet another gimmick! Love it!
Off to see the KC Royals today in their last Sunday home game of the season. We are taking our grandson Ryder to see his first baseball game. He is so excited.....no really he could care less. I guess it's the adults that are more excited.
Hope everyone has had a terrific weekend!
