Pre-race routine:

Got up with the alarm and tossed on my running gear...favorite run mojo. Purple shorts with sports bra...today I even wore a white technical tee shirt. Had my run hat...purple and white with a white cheer ribbon which has it's own story for another day.
Event warmup:

Got out the door, started running.

My virtual run for someone who has touched many folks here on BT. I love running and I really love running early in the morning so I chose to honor your life and love for this sport with a dawn run.

What would you do differently?:

Nothing. I went out and tried to go fast. I saw the threads said you wanted a sub 30 min 5K as a goal so I pushed my body to do the same for you. It was just over the 5K--but fast cause it needed to be.

Warm down:

Ran inside, checked the clock since I didn't get the HRM button right in the dark

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

I wish it could have been under different circumstances. But running, celebrating the sport you love...that I love...in honor of the life that was led by an extraordinary lady...nothing better. I even made airplane arms on my turns like I read you did.

this is a virtual race for Christine. I don't know you, but you have touched many lives here on BT so I know your presence will be missed
Course: Out my door and right up a slight hill, right again at the next corner. Left at the end and again at the fork. Follow this to the intersedtion with Harrowgate turn back but go up to Overridge and bear right then right on Greenbriar and left on Horseshoebend Dr and again at Cara Hill.
