We started off our day pretty normally… except for the part where I had to wake up and do everything myself! 😉 (Normally, dada takes care of a lot of our morning routine!)
Basketball practice for Denny, Lowes to build a Christmas train, and then to the library to see Santa! Lot’s of fun… but I couldn’t stop thinking about Nate running 31 miles! Ummmm… that’s a long way!
When Nate called to say he had just finished and was feeling good… I was relieved, excited, happy, and so proud of this huge accomplishment! It was on narrow, rough, and very hilly trails which made it a very TOUGH course! There was 4000+ feet of elevation!
The worst part for him was probably the HEAT! Who would have thought it would be 67 degrees in the middle of December! And to think a couple weeks ago I was worried about a snow storm! Nate runs without a shirt in 30 degrees because he gets hot… so this was way too warm for him!
He ended up getting 19th overall with a time of 6:03:42!
I know this race means 31 is going to be a great year! Every year seems to get better and better for us!
