A new day
(pic: Mary Gorski & Lisa B at the pre-race meeting)
Thanks y'all for kind words and encouragement. I'm feeling totally fine now. I had a tough time staying asleep for various reasons, but was always able to fall back to sleep, and I moved around normally, bit wilt caution.
Our fight to Spokane via Denver was easy. We ran into Deedee and Amy Grafius at the airport so we enjoyed some veggie burritos together. I was actually starving, which was a great sign. I was a little nervous but ate most of it and had no problems. I had other food snacks with me that stayed down well and I am thrilled about that!
I struggled with the thought of "running" today here in Spokane where is 65 degrees. The mind really wants to but the body's not ready. I must let it rest from that road pounding. Now, this would be a good time to get on a bike! By the way, the bike's coming, I'm going to a shop in Seattle for a custom. I hope to have it in 3 weeks.

So, YES, I've got some pictures from the race. Pre-race & during. There are many relay runners I don't know, but you can probably guess right who is a relay and who's a solo just by looking. It's real easy...they are running faster! They were incredibly nice to us.
Here's the link to my pictures if you are interested.
