Solstice Run – part 2

photo 3(1)

It’s been a little while since I updated you on my training for the Solstice Run on June 21. Today a few of us from the team ran about 17 miles together. And we were done by 8 a.m.! We started in the dark and spitting rain at 5 a.m. and ended by 8 in heavier rain. We had a big stretch that was dry, cloudy and low 40s; I actually love this kind of weather for running.

Why 5 a.m. today? Jen and I both had families we needed to get back to and soccer games to jet off to later in the morning. Sneaking in a hot shower, hearty breakfast and a steamy cup of coffee? Mandatory. So 5 was the magic number. It’s actually pretty empowering to be done with a long run when a lot of people are just rolling out of bed. But now as I write this in the early afternoon, my stomach is upset, I’m about to collapse on to my keyboard and at the same time, I’m trying not to stop moving or my muscles will get even more sore. Good thing I got to run around the soccer field with Wren’s soccer team again this morning. So I might have added another mile to my total running tally today...

If you want to throw a few bucks toward this excellent cause, I would very much appreciate it. I’m about half-way to my goal of $1000. Every dollar counts! I truly appreciate your support; big thanks to those who have already given. Kudos! Know that you are supporting a wonderful program
