Be excellent to each other.

My running friend, Eric, missed qualifying for Boston last year by .02.  How cruel is that.  Never mind, he ran his 7th consecutive Boston, this time on a charity bib.   Surely he would get in this year no problem, right? 

He’s pretty badass.  He runs 100 mile races (and buckles).  Multiple Bostons, Chicago’s, etc.  

This year he missed qualifying for Boston again.  By .01.

I was out recruiting today and just “happened” to be near my running store.  So I stopped in for a quick glance at some kicks.  I immediately recognized the  super bubbly woman who greeted me as Marisa, who won the women’s Fox Valley Marathon  last Sunday (and who also smoked the course record).  I distinctly remember her when she FLEW by me at mile 23.  Whoa. So,  I congratulated her for her win.

 Guess what?  She remembers seeing me cheering twice on the course. Ha.  She thanked ME for cheering her on.  Really?  I am not worthy of even being on the same course as her.   She talked to me a little about my running (or lack there of) and gave me a little bit of encouragement.  I’m hoping .000001 % of her epicness rubbed off on me.

two long, painful, slow running miles. First run in well over a month.  Adding on 9.1 miles to this in 7 weeks seems like an impossibility. Oh, well, I’ll at least give it a go. What could possibly go wrong? Lol 

The highlight of this run was when I was crossing a major intersection & as I was in the middle a BAMF ultra runner chick came running from across the street. I was ready to do the obligatory runner smile/wave. But, instead she reached out for a killer low five. Thanks girlie! Just what I needed.

Some woman just drove past me in a minivan with “NKOTB” on the license plate. I’m scared for humanity.

Did someone say Fall? Pffft.
