Tall Mom Virtual Race for the Cure

I am running my first race of 2010. I know many of you have been racing in local races - or have traveled to warmer climates to race. But this will be my first of the season. It will be a lot of fun to be part of the virtual race.

It was funny at dinner tonight. My husband, youngest son and I went out to eat after I got home from my yoga class. I was telling them about the race. They didn't really understand why I would be doing this.

"Why don't you just say that you ran?"

"How will it be fair - some people will run hilly courses and others flat?"

"People will be all different ages."

"Just pick a fast time and report it."

I assured them that it was going to be fun and I was looking forward to it. They just shook their heads.

Looking forward to my run tomorrow. Running because I can. ;-)
