This past weekend, as I've said earlier, I was working a table for ZOOMA Women's Race Series at the Hyannis Marathon expo. For me it was the best of both worlds...I was able to people watch AND talk about running! Score! My hubby has made comments in the past about runners...particularly those who walk around at expos and before a race like the king of the jungle. A classic big fish in a small pond. Those who are not runners generally think that runners are...well...nuts! Considering the weather this weekend I think runners earned that title...high wind + pouring rain + freezing temps = perfect day to run a marathon!!
Carpe Diem Crystal who lost 60+lbs this year and finished her first marathon despite the pouring rain and temps just above 35! I was inspired by Kim, a mom of 2 who was running her first marathon while being coached by her more than energetic father-in-law. I was inspired by Dan owner of NRG Bar and his team who cruised through a tough half marathon with amazing times! I was inspired by Bill Rodgers who, even though he is a Boston Marathon legend, came over and chatted about running and ZOOMA like no big deal! The list could go on and on but it helped to remind me how much I love running....and being crazy like the rest!!! I'm in good company!
