well my daughter gave a good try at cross country but after 3 days 3 mile runs that were HOT HILLY mid-day runs at a fast pace (to keep up with the team and not get lost) she opted out and decided to join beginning Dance Team instead. too bad, I wish he did not start them out in the cool morning she did not ever run before and it was not gentle couch to 5K this was start out running 3 miles fast. She could barely walk, let alone run I felt for her I had her agree to some easy runs with me after all I would hate for her to Hate running.
I am heading out to Ohio to visit my parents. My father is recovering from a Left hip replacement after a fall. I hope to snag a trail run with my running buddy Brooke while I am there. She is training hardcore for her first Tri and is doing open water swims at Fairport Harbor at 5AM and trail runs at 4:30 AM at North Chagrin Reservation. Lets see if I am up to that early time with my time change. According to her that is the best time to avoid the heat and humidity...yikes!
and a final thought for the day Los Angeles Marathon opened up to registration today......do I want to do this again? hmmmm need to think about it but it was amazing...but I did it as planned before I turned 50....I need to think about this. I think my favorite race is the 10K. The others are a bit too brutal.
