Race Report: Madison Mini Marathon 2011

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Long time no least over here on SparkPeople. I've been keeping a training/running blog over on Blogger, but haven't been the greatest about linking it up to SP for my friends to keep up. I'm going to work on that, promise!

This weekend, I ran the 2011 Madison Mini Marathon with my SparkPeople friends Laurie and Elsa, and it was an experience to remember! Just incredible, in spite of a ninety minute weather delay. I wrote up a race report. Read it at this link:


Coming up next, the Disney Wine & Dine Half Marathon on October 1! It's been nearly a year since I've traveled to Walt Disney World, so I'm just about ready for another dose of The Mouse!

    RB, Madison Mini 2011 will be in our memory banks for a long long time! How long have we waited to run together? Like forever? The wait was so worth it and I thank God for placing you in my life. It is usually difficult for me to meet new people, but I felt so right talking to you from the getgo on Friday.

    Mile 4. Wow, you and contraptions are a comical mix and I was not a bit shocked when you told me that once again, you had problems.

    You and I have so much to look forward to coming up and the deal is, these are races that or very special to me and having you there is icing on my running cake!

    Wonder what Madison Mini medal will be next year? One thing is for will be awesome! Our plan is to stay a second night so we can hang around The Terrace post-race. Be there cuz we MUST have our photo taken in the big chair and perhaps TOGETHER! how fun would that be?

    Love ya, RB!!!!!!

    You ran right by my house on Allen Street. If the church you refer to in your report is Blessed Sacrament, my house was in the block before that. I'd have been out cheering for you if only I had known!
