enjoying every second of life and running


Athletic Supporter


Lots of rest, with 4.1 Miles, 5 Miles, 6 Miles Easy, and Yoga. 

This weekend we had no races. Just time to relax, catch up with friends and get some house chores accomplished. We had the chance to sleep in Saturday, but what’s the fun in that when we have the option to cheer on our friends at their race and be an athletic supporter (hehehehe). ISU Homecoming 5K Town and Gown was Saturday morning. We went to cheer on Lisa. She was set to have a new PR and I wanted to be there to see it.Plus ORRT Ryan and Deb were racing.

The new course had a loop inside the quad so we had an opportunity to cheer on everyone as they went by. Ryan and Deb were both overall winners, plus Ryan also set a new PR! Lisa also had an amazing new PR, taking two minutes off of her time and getting 1st in her age group!

Lisa and me.

Sunday ORRT came out to support a local 5K race by providing the finish line duties. Rob is and awesome husband and came out to lend a hand too.

Me helping set up the finish chute, which means just threading the rope through the cones.

Carol from ORRT came out to win overall female!

I would recommend as a part of anyone’s training plan to make time to volunteer for a race. Race volunteer opportunities can include packet pick up, water stop, split timer, finish line and more. I’ve done all of these roles at one time or another and they are all great. If you can’t schedule the volunteer time, just come out to cheer on the racers. It’s a way to give back, plus it’s exciting to see others out there racing.
