Since I hadn’t been to Blake’s new home yet, we thought it would be fun for me to come spend the weekend at his house and run the San Diego Trail Marathon together. It has been a great weekend, so fun to see him, his family, and his new stomping grounds.
It rained all night Friday night and was still raining hard when we got up Saturday morning and drove to the race, but by the time the race started, it had stopped raining. It was very muddy though. We had determined to not race this race but instead to just run together and enjoy running together and we stayed with that the whole race. At one point Blake’s leg was tight so we walked together. Likewise when I felt a little nauseous he walked with me. It was just about doing this together. We weren’t fast, but we had fun. It was a great weekend.
Now it is time for me to get serious about running a fast marathon in April.
