This run has been planned for awhile. I had time to run a full marathon since registering for this half marathon. I haven’t run a race with a group of so many friends since college when I used to run the Beach to Bay Relay Marathon in Corpus Christi every Labor Day weekend. And now it’s time, we leave tomorrow morning. I have to squeeze in a business call first at 7:30 am. Not to be outdone, Karen is teaching an aerobics class in Boulder at 6am. Then we drop Jack off at the doggie ranch and we hit the road.
I expect lunch in either Vail or Glenwood Springs. And 2 or 3 hours later we’ll be in Utah. I’ve never driven west of Grand Junction before. I’m looking forward to turning south off I-70 onto U-128 for the slow scenic drive alongside the Colorado River. We’re leaving early enough to take the slow road. I wish I had a camera other than my iPhone. I need to work on that. But I expect some great team pics during this event. And you should too – look for me to post some pics by Sunday for sure.
