|Another dark o'clock start.|
|Cadillac Steve and Sofie were instrumental in getting me to the finish line yesterday. Today, they were very happy to see me smile. I was happy to see me smile! I was happy to see these two out there for the dark o'clock early start with me!|
Even though my foot felt healed, I still took it easy. Fortunately, this was a flat out and back course so I didn't have to put too much stress on my body. I also got to see other runners pass me on a few occasions. Some runners don't like this, but I do. I like being able to high five my fellow runners as they zoom past me. I'm not one of those tunnel visioned marathoners who is only concerned about their finish time. I am very social and I like schmoozing it up with peeps along the course. I got to do a lot of this today!
|Here's a great group of Maniacs. From left to right: Me, Ultra Pussy Cat, Shoney Mahoney, Coconut Boy, Deo, Brady Wentlandt, Shawna Wentlandt, Doggie Doc Jim Grimes, and soon to be minted Marathon Maniac Mike Hanson (he qualified with this race).|
|And away we go!|
|Mike and Jim going for their second loop.|
|The couple that runs together, stays together!|
|Gotta love Rosemarie and Raoul.|
|The winners! My trophy is a banana.|
What a difference a day--and quality sleep--makes. I got my mojo back, and everyone on the course who ran yesterday's marathon knew right away. I had so much fun today. The medal rocks with the cartoon turkey on it! I'm excited for tomorrow's race, the third and final in this Thanksgiving Triple Extravaganza!
|Titanium Score Board: 45 down, 7 to go.|
You'll probably notice that the date on the medal doesn't match up. Charlie Alewine gave us all Sunday's medal instead of today's. It's all good, because I know I'll get that other medal tomorrow. Let's count it down peeps: SEVEN!!!!!!!!
