I knew I should have written this post yesterday. Well, I was trying to hydrate for the Boilermaker 15K, the premier 15K in Utica, NY. I ran today. Then I went to my sister’s house, where I daresay I could have gotten on one of her devices and posted something. Instead I drank some wine, ate some food, swam in the pool twice — once with my delightful great nephew — and generally had a wonderful post-race time.
Now I am at home and I do not feel inclined to make a post, “real” or otherwise. Of course I must make a post. I make a post every day. Luckily for me it is Wrist to Forehead Sunday. How many good posts do I make on a Sunday? Not many,I’m thinking (naturally I am not inclined to look).
I’ll write a few words on the Boilermaker 15K. I enjoyed it. For the first mile or so I felt I was running faster than I wanted to, in spite of the fact that I thought 13,999 runners were passing me (the cap was supposedly 14,000 runners). After that I felt I was not capable of running as fast as I thought I should. Then I thought to myself, Just run your race, run your pace, don’t worry about it.
I am so glad I ran it. I can’t say how soon I shall run it again. However, I hope to write another blog post about it soon. In the meantime, I hope you are all having a delightful Sunday.
