Ow, Ow, WOW!
As you may already know, I'm in training for another marathon coming up this fall. Today I ran a half-marathon as part of the training. Buddy ran his first half today too, and he did a great job. He ran with me and my RP (running partner) until about mile 8, then took off. I was SO proud of him!
The race was great! The Rockies are intensely beautiful, and it was really wonderful to get out and be in them! I was remembering why I race - not because I'm so incredibly fast or anything, just because it's so fun to be up early and enjoying life, and enjoying the WOW factor of the world, particularly today the mountains.
And note to my brothers: We are not joggers!
"The difference between a runner and a jogger is an entry form!"
