Saturday was the Croom Fools Race.
Sunday I volunteered all day at an adventure Race.
Monday I went camping with my BLF (she is the best! I am not lucky I am truly blessed)
I got back at Tuesday night.
I worked on race results all day today, aside from taking my daughter (I believe I mentioned that I am blessed!) to lunch and a movie.
Today I have track districts all day and night, I leave here at 9AM, hoping to be home by 11AM.
I really have to do some school work on Friday, Saturday, Sunday.
I'm supposed to be on Easter Break. Man, I can't wait to get back to work, I need the resT!
Great news from the weary. I shared a little of the pre Croom race, "What's up with these guys?" correspondence, how about some of the post, attaboy race stuff. I actually got quite a lot of it this year, (thanks to my awesome partner Jim, I can do more with volunteers and PR stuff, that I'm so good at (har har). Anyway, here's my favorite of the attaboy letters from a 15-mile runner:
I just wanted to take a moment and say thank you so much for putting on this race. It was honestly the most challenging race I have competed in since I started running 6 months ago. Save me a spot next year because I want a rematch!And a big kudos too all of the volunteers out there. They were amazing! Words cannot describe how supportive and sincere they all were. Hands down the best group crew I have ever met! If I had to squat down to rest---they offered a hand to pick me back up. If I drank all my water, they offered to re-fill my cup. I was honestly touched by how much they reached out to everyone. When you think you're running on empty, they'd say something encouraging which re-energized me for the next leg of the race.Thank you again--to everyone.
Not Bad huh? I already thanked them all on the ultra list, but still, AndyB, Becky, Patrick, Jim, Joe, David, Marc (he's a rock star!), June Bug (can't live without her!), Steve, Allen, Toni (always smiling, always helping!), Trudi, Hazel, Mary Beth (she Toni), Pete, EYA & Dan F, Dan M (you are the man!), I just want to give you all a hug, actually I'd like to throw you a party, but only Dan F got back to me, so I reckon yall don't want my beer and burgers, but that's ok too.
Hey, I may be busier than a stimulus package salesman right now, but still I have enough time to acknowledge the Boston gang that did come run at Croom. They were the most fun to have around and here they are. You guys, you made me laugh, and that's the best thing that can be said about anyone!
Alison, Adam, Mr Le (1st in the Asian Division!), Aimee, Aimee's not as aesthetic half (but what a great guy :), And the out of place old guy (me!) Thanks for spicing things up a bit!
