Pre-race routine:

A moment of prayer - giving thanks for the impact Christine had on the many lives she touched. A wish that the family that is left behind is enveloped in love, encouraged, and strengthened as they go on living on this earth.
Event warmup:

Wrapping up last minute things in the office, heading downstairs to the gym, changing clothes and walking to the start line.
  • 22m 20s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 11s  min/mile

Took this out strong. I wanted to try and race this to the best I had today. That is all I have, tomorrow is not guaranteed.
Touch lives, make every person better for having come in contact with you. From what I have read, that is what Christine did.
Tell the people you love that you love them, don't just assume they know. Life is precious, life is short no matter how many years you are on this earth, live each day.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked back to the gym and hit the treadmill for .65 miles at a 9:40 pace

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Running alone, some hills, wrong snacks this afternoon????

Event comments:

I ran this virtual Race in Denver. But it is not about me, it is about the memory of someone who impacted the lives she touched. A triathlete's way of showing love to a family who lost someone dear to them. May she be in the presence of God, and may her family be comforted, uplifted and strengthened every step of the way.
