Run 'til Your Green - Race Reflections
The race course has a few very mild rolling ups and downs, which are no problem due to my incline training. However, the race course is along a road that was inudated by seawater from the tsunami last week. I can tell it had an impact and can smell the after effects. I later learn that the race directors travelled our course the day prior and removed dead fish from the road to the ditches.
At the mid-point I check my pace and I am still going strong and pick up the pace for the final return. Why not? I have the wind to my back and I smile and enjoy the feeling. I feel like I am running free and happy and relish in the feeling that this is why they call many 5K's fun runs. Yes, I am having fun!
I dance with my daughter and enjoy a drink while we wait for the results to come in. Afterwards, I take my family to Pinata's for dinner and enjoy something new - the portabella mushroom quesadilla that came highly recommended and now I know why.
Delicious! And the only green that I ingest is my guacamole and cilantro on the side.
