First off, thanks so much everyone for the congratulations on the PR this weekend! It feels great to finally beat my time from my first 5K race EVER. After the race was over the day was too nice to waste so a bike ride was in order. Neil and I rode from Dalhousie in the NW along the pathways to Edworthy Park, then down in to Marda Loop in the SW for just about 10 mi. There were some pretty good hills along the way, going both up and down. We stopped in at Original Joe's in Marda Loop for some chicken wings and sweet potato fries that tasted so good. Afterwards it was back on the bikes to return to the NW. On the way back - kind of a scary moment - Neil and I were riding down Home Road and crossing 16th Ave. A woman coming towards us wanted to make a left hand turn onto 16th Ave in front of us. She started her turn as Neil was in the intersection, then saw him and stopped. She didn't see me right behind him and she started her turn again just as I was in the intersection. Luckily she saw me in time but it sure felt like a close call. We were the only ones in our lane so we should have been pretty visible, but obviously she wasn't paying attention. After that the hills to get back to Dalhousie...intense! My legs were pretty well shot after the ride was over.
Yesterday was a designated rest day so nothing noteworthy to report.
Tonight I have BBC (maybe a run beforehand, but we'll see), then am catching a red eye out to Toronto and arriving in Orlando tomorrow afternoon. I am so ready for this trip! For those of you that will be at the 5K and 15K this weekend, I hope to see you there (Audrey, Bill, holo lkaiki, Maddy, Scott)! Please say hi if you recognize me. I'll be wearing a pink shirt and a blue running skirt at the 5K, and a red skirt and black tank top at the 15K.
