Sibling run. Boston sports team themed. I was the Bruins. I took last night’s loss as a sign of bad juju for this morning’s run.
2 days of solid rain meant quite a few spots of calf deep standing water. And mud. Once I got past the initial “my shoes and everything in them are soaked” shock, I enjoyed jumping through the massive, trail blocking, puddles.
My goal was 45-48 minutes. I finished in less than 42. I placed second in my age group, which resulted in a sweet new glass for victory cider.
At one point I saw Arika on the trail and she pointed at me and clapped…I may have started crying.
And my dad is a bomb race photographer.
