Unfortunately this weekends plans were thrown off course. Cory and I had planned to drive down to Salida Saturday morning for the Run Through Time Half Marathon Trail Race. I was excited for this race and while I knew it would be hard, I was excited for the challenge and to see how I would do in this type of race.
Friday night we drove up to my parents house to drop our dogs off for some puppy sitting.
After dropping off the “kids” we grabbed some sandwiches from a little shop near my parent’s house to eat on the way home. We got home and headed to bed early since we had an early wake up call. I will save you the gory details but Cory spent most of the night up very sick. Poor thing ate something that his body wasn’t happy about. We discussed what to do about the race. Cory understandably said he wasn’t up for running, while I was fine I didn’t want to have to drive six hours by myself to run (or have Cory drive me while sick) after losing a lot of sleep myself. We made the difficult decision to miss the race and DNS. These things happen but it was a bummer. The really sad thing was that by 7am when we got up Cory was feeling completely better but there wasn’t enough time to get to Salida for the start.
The good news was Cory was feeling good enough to get some training in and it was BEAUTIFUL out so we grabbed our bikes and rode a nice 60 miles out around Boulder.
On Sunday we made up for missing our half marathon by running 15.5 miles along one of my favorite paths.
I can’t wait for the trees to get their leaves, I am ready for spring! The weather has been so warm that I ran in a tank and got a slight sun burn. I would have liked to head to a hillier trail but we were limited on time so kept in simple.
After our run we had a lot of errands to run but an iced coffee made it painless.
How was your weekend?
