After my finish I went back out on the course and ran (that's a s-t-r-e-t-c-h--it was very painful to run ... I could only manage a slow jog, dragging my right leg along behind me!) in with some of my running buddies who were running the full marathon. That was by far the best part of my day and I have similar memories from Med-City 2008. As was being able to share some cookies with them at the finish line. All's well that ends well as they say.
Just a couple miscellaneous things. I have cookies to bake for the Cookie Monsters tomorrow as it's the first Monday of the month.
There will be an open water swim--first of the season--at Foster Arends at 7:00 PM on Tuesday in preparation for the triathlon season. Speaking of triathlons ... registration for the Rochesterfest Triathlon closes Monday. As does Grandman's Marathon. Also, passes for swimming laps at Silver Lake pool are now available at the Y. You do not have to be a Y member to purchase one. And if you are a Y member, you need to purchase one to swim laps there.
Volunteers are needed for the Mac Attack 5K on June 14 (evening event). Contact Lin Gentling if you can help out. I'll be at registration and/or finish line I believe.
From Laura Lenz: NY Times Blog with a running/marathon article every day.
My son Eric has resurrected his Twins blog. Here's a link.
Here are some photos from Team RED on Thursday. From Tom O'Leary: " We had a small role in an Action for Axel Baseball for Bucks event to help raise money for this young man and his family. Team RED members did a baseball bat spin and run dizzy thing... As well as a loop circling the bases... Then it was off for an actual run, YES, we do run! haha... then we went back and ate concessions to support the fundraising... "
Quote for the day, as seen on a banner along the course today: "Don't be afraid to be amazing."
