Ran the Tommy Vaughn race this weekend. It was a fun local race. The director put on a good race. Just a few things to work out for next year. My watch said 3.19 miles at 25.13.98 minutes. The posting time from T.V. says 25.49 for 3.1 miles. Who's to say who's right. It was a good race overall. There was a young girl pass me at the end (I'd passed her earlier in the race). She should have since she looked like she was in her early 20's. It just bugs me alittle that she passed me.
I had organized something at work for some of the employee's and there were around 55 employee's that took part of T.V.. Most of them walked, but it was great that they were out there. I was glad to see them do something out of their comfort zone and see what the running community is all about. Hopefully we can do it again at wI'ork and this time even more people do it. Another positive is Marlin and I both took Masters in our races. Hopefully I wasn't the only who qualified for it in my race. I'm not sure who or how many people may have qualified for it. I'm just happy Marlin and I got it at the same time. After the race we drove to Boise to move our daughters things over to her new apartment. Sure was a fun weekend.
Marlin and I are hoping to find out what I'm sensitive food wise. I'm being tested for food sensitivies. My diets been super limited for that last two weeks. It's getting easier to do but it's been a pain. Hopefully just two more weeks of eating like this. My energy level has been lower than normal, but I have been feeling better. I only ran once in the last two weeks. Have just been doing cross training at the gym. I feel like I'm falling apart because my back and right leg has bothered me for the last 6 months or so. But, I'm been working on getting that taken care of also. The doc doesn't really want me to run, bike, do the elliptical, rowing machine, ect.... But, I can do yoga and weights. I've been pretty good about cutting back but it's drove me nuts alittle. I know in the long run it's going to be fine. This is a great time for me to get back on track and build up more strenght so I'm actually ok with it all.
It was great seeing everyone out this week racing! Everyone did awesome!!!
