Bonjour my friends
Just a quick race report
Pictures will follow...when I get home!
This morning I ran the 10k La Desecente Royale in my hometown
It was fantastic. Beautiful course. Lot`s of supporters and volunteers.
I did my best time: 1:00 FLAT.
I was not in top condition. Major congestion thanks to really bad allergies...Quebec is a lot GREENER then California!
and I slept 3 hours last night (last night was my 25th year High School reunion)
So I am HAPPY HAPPY.
I was fighting dry heaves in the last mile, was pretty bad, my mom saw me almost collapse near the finish and I ran the last 0.25 miles in a lot of pain because of the dry heaves, the worst I have had so far in a race.
I scared her I think. She asked "Why do you do this to yourself and YOU PAY FOR THIS?" !!!
Right now as I type this I still feel like crap. I had to cancel a visit with some friends, I think I push my old body to it`s limits.
Thank you to all of you who have left comments while I am here!
I appreciate this a lot!
2 more days until we go back to California. I am sad and it will be hard to say goodbye.
High School reunion was a BLAST! 175 of us were there and some teachers also. Most of the people have not changed. I got recognized by everyone but 1! Pretty good average! I am the one who is the furthest away from here and I am the only nut case who runs! They were all calling me "The marathoner" I kept saying "no just half!!!"
