My original plan for this past Sat., was to run my Triple Trek loops, (since I do an aid station for the race), and be happy to get it done.
While chatting with Don,,,I asked him if he wanted to do a couple loops with me if I kept going,,,and to see if anyone wanted to run with me at nite, and we'd make it a birthday run.
Well,,,Don ran with the idea,,,and turned it into one of my best birthdays!
I had folks out there with me all day, and as the day went on the more runners showed up. There were highs and lows,,,it was hot and humid,,,and then the cooling rain,,,and then the fun mud!! We even had the Dewald boys out there and Mauricio's daughter,,(on his back).
Old friends and new,,,,sharing the day with me. And to top it off, a midnight birthday party at the finish!
Please know in my heart, this was a really special day for me,,,,,,,you all are my family, not just friends.
I can't thank you enough for sharing this with me....
This was an eventful weekend for HURT, so many of our runners and friends had great races on the mainland.
It's going to be a great HURT season.
