It’s not everyday I get one of these. This is from my marathon back in June. I thought I had at least placed in my age group, but I didn’t think I’d be getting anything. What a nice surprise. Actually, in the grand scheme of things, age group awards do seem a little silly. It’s not like I won the race. They don’t have age groups in the Olympics…you just compete against who is there regardless of age. But, I guess there’s that little kid in us all that enjoys winning something, no matter how we come by it.
Mike was out of town for half of the week and Jasper and managed to make it through his minor stomach ailment, a killer wasp in the house, and the 50th day straight of 105 degrees (or something like that). I got in my loops around the block and rode the trainer this morning. If I keep this up, I may consider upgrading some components on my bike to something made this decade.
Coming up this weekend…17 miler, Walnut Creek trail run!, swimming lessons, Ashtanga yoga, and a carnival at Jasper’s daycare. Whew!
