We decided to run this race just a few days before the race. The kids were staying at Opa and Neina's (Grandpa & Grandma) house for the weekend. Malissa and I were deciding what we were going to do with our rare weekend alone.
We decided a nice trip to the Smoky Mountains was in order. We like to revolve our trips around a race so I found this race in Cosby, Tennessee. Since we were doing it for fun, I told Malissa I would pace her. She shattered her PR by several minutes.
After the race, I wanted to run back to the Bed & Breakfast we were staying at as part of my marathon training. Malissa stayed back for the awards and I actually beat her back (about 7 miles straight up the highway).
|We thought the awards were pretty cool.|
