After spending Saturday night proving I can still hang with my boozey OH friends and getting a teaspoon-worth of shut eye, I met Kimi at our classy rendezvous point (the Walmart parking lot) to get our runner cheer on all morning.
Kimi’s dealing with some nasty post-marathon knee issues & I was trying to play my “responsible recovery” card so we headed up to the CWRRC Fall Classic Half/5K and tried not to be bitter about not running.
Luckily 4 hours of cowbelling kept me occupied and distracted.
(And everybody else with a strong desire to punch me.)
We got lucky with some awesome (not just for Ohio) weather, a kick ass field of friendly & appreciative runners to cheer for, and lots of fun with new internet-turned-IRL friends.
I’ve got my race cheerleader act all fine-tuned and ready for y’all in Vegas. I’ll be working on my toe-touches, cartwheels, and choreographed dance moves to make sure you really get my best.
Sweaty Emily, you better step up your game. We’re throwing down on the Strip in 2 weeks and counting.
