Veteran’s Day Relay!

This weekend, I had my usual long run with my running group – 14 miles! A little longer than my typical long runs lately ranging from 10-12 miles, and I struggled a bit. But I hung in there and got it done. I didn’t quite run the last 15 minutes at half marathon goal pace (7:50ish) as Coach prescribed, but I got the miles in and time on my feet.

Then, I got to take part in something really special! That afternoon, I headed to the Run Texas Frisco store for the Veteran’s Day Relay. I had no idea what to expect but I knew I had to wear my USA pants and I knew that I wanted to honor our military and veteran’s on Veteran’s Day.

We ran with the flag up and down a busy street near the running shop. It felt a bit odd at first, but the support shown was amazing. People honked and waved and police officers turned on their lights. It was a very overwhelming feeling to show support for our country. I can’t even imagine how proud and honored our Veteran’s feel. As they should. Thank you to everyone who has served our country.

Even Derby showed her support!

It was a great (busy!) day! 14 miles and tacos, followed by running to honor our Veterans. Thank you Run Texas for hosting this great event and thank you to Lifelong Endurance for prescribing my 14 miler 😉 really though, I wouldn’t be the runner I am today without you!
