The bike ride was wonderful and this week is so busy I’m already wondering how I’m going to fit in my runs. Since December started I’m officially back in 1/2 marathon training mode, which doesn’t really change anything too drastically besides lengthening my long run. This weekend the 5k seems a little scary now, but I know it will be fun because I’m running it with my newly running cousin. She ran the turkey trot like a champ and is slowly getting hooked. :)
As for the girl I coached, she placed 9th at State in Division 5! I am so proud of her and her coach now and I are good friends and he said her race was incredible and for once she put it all out on the line. Amazing!
Anyways, the gift ideas are going to keep coming. How about all those race medals that seem to start collecting after a while. Some may want to leave their medals in a shoebox, but displaying some of your runner’s proudest finishes is important. At Finger Lakes MedalCraft they have garnished up quite a way to display medals including personalized runner’s hanging medal racks.
