As soon as we began training for it, we realized that it was going to be more difficult than we realized. First of all, we are so used to running together that long runs alone are now awful. In addition, we didn't anticipate how difficult it would be to get ourselves running again after taking such a long break. But, we take challenges head on and worked to get ready for the race.
There is a different feeling when you show up for race day. All of your concerns about success start to go away and the energy makes you feel like you can do anything. This is why we tend to run a bit too fast the first mile, but we get adjusted quickly. I was there to see Lisa take off from the start line and then I jumped in the car with her mom to get to the first cheering location. Lisa came by at about mile 3 and we were there to take pictures and give her a high five. We then headed over to the first relay station!
It was a great experience that I'm really glad we did, but I seriously doubt I will run this way again. Running together is way more fun!
