Hello and happy Saturday! Today was the Run to the Shrine 4-mile race! I had a blast.
That’s the Shrine! It’s two miles up and two miles down and a portion of the race goes right through my zoo. My husband joined me and he had a really good time too. We had a freak snow storm a couple of days ago and I was worried it would be cold and snowy, but the day turned out to be beautiful.
The first super fast racers were already flying down when I passed the first mile marker. The top finisher completed the course is something like 25 minutes! I can’t imagine running that fast. I was a little wary of eating it on the way down, but managed to stay upright even while taking pictures.
You seriously felt closer to the clouds than to the earth up there. I did manage to run the whole way down and LOVED that I got to run past my coworkers cheering me on! I passed the commissary (where we prepare the food for the zoo animals) and there must have been 5 or 6 of my friends screaming my name. That doesn’t happen at a regular race and it gave me a huge smile that lasted to the finish line.
Do you wear something “lucky” for big events? Races, tests, interviews?
What are your weekend plans?
