Run with the Dingoes during the Dog Days of August - Page 3

post #41 of 913
I'm late on the race list too, but nancy, I hope you had a great race, and GOOD LUCK JAYGEE!!!

No official running today, but we biked to a park and I ran up and down a hill barefoot in the grass w/ DD, so I'll count that as my forward motion for the day

Bye-bye! I'm off to the races ! Unfortunately, I'm having some digestive issues this morning. Hope they don't effect me at race time. I'll be back with a report this afternoon !

I'm back from volunteering at Tri for the Cure...holy crap am I tired! I think my legs hurt worse than if I had actually raced! Not to mention I'm going on 3 hours of sleep...had to be there at 4:15 this morning. I was in the transition area so I spent the first two hours directing people to their rack, marking them with their race numbers (holy permanent marker fumes, batman!), and answering questions. Then I got to hand out water (and cheer myself hoarse) at the start of the run. It was hot, hot, hot. The last racers got on the run course a good four hours after the first wave started (which was almost three hours AFTER I got there!). What a great experience, though. I truly believe that everyone should volunteer for at least one race just to see it from the other side. Plus, it's so rewarding. I had one woman give me a big hug and a kiss on the cheek after the race to say thank you! :

Now trying to get motivation up to go to the Y to swim. My legs are shot, but I haven't been in the pool in almost two weeks. And I have a 10 miler planned tomorrow...we'll see how (or if!) that goes!

Eagerly awaiting race reports...

And reporting in that I dragged my sorry butt to the Y and forced myself to swim my 1500 m. It was slow, it was not fun, but I did it and I did not allow myself to quit at 750 even though I really really wanted to! Then I took myself to Qdoba and rewarded myself with a chicken queso burrito. :
