The Race That Wasn’t

This morning Rob and I were up at 4am and out the door by 5am to drive an hour to Decatur to run the Shoreline 15K. It’s a scenic and hilly course that loops around part of Lake Decatur. We went to pick up our packets only to find out that we weren’t registered! Whoops!! In the midst of our race registrations this spring I swore I got this race covered, but apparently not. And this year there was no race day registration. Oh well.

The event is one our team store is involved with so it just meant we would have more time to help sell merchandise. Rob was such a good sport about the whole thing and jumped into help.

A blurry pic of me helping with set up.

After the race kicked off Mike (ORRT member), Rob and I went out to run the course easy. It was nice to still get out catch up with our friend and get some miles in. 🙂



Saturday I had an excellent spin class, got in a light couple miles running, got a quick shower and then headed to the salon. Afterward Rob took me for my first flight in our J-3 Cub. This would be my first Cub flight. Rob had training in a Cub so this was business as usual for him. This was also my first time flying tandem, meaning sitting front to back instead of side by side.

While Rob prepared the plane I screwed around taking pictures.

This was just a quick flight to our friend’s farm to land on his airstrip and head back. We had issues with our radio, which means we need to address it. It wasn’t a comfortable flight with loud static in our headsets. Here is a picture of one of our companies buildings as we headed out.

What’s crazy is you can fly the Cub with the door and window open so the whole side of the plane is open. Rob says it’s like flying a Jeep. 🙂 I will get a pic of this next time.
