At every Olympics, I imagined myself a world class sprinter. I have a great imagination! Lol. Evelyn Ashford (first woman to run the 100m under 11 seconds at an Olympic games) was my girl! I was never a Flo Jo fan though (not gonna make any comments about steroids).
I am talking about track and field because tomorrow I do my first speedwork run in my marathon training. I am supposed to go to the track and run 400m as fast as I can, rest one minute, then repeat that sequence four times. Lloyd has already told me I’m gonna be dead after I’m finished, and that by the time I finish training for the marathon, I’m going to hate speedwork. You gotta love his honesty! Lol.
Ah well….I’m looking forward to channeling my inner Evelyn. Even if it’s only for 20 meters. Lol.
Thanks much to those who have contributed to my GRIP fundraising goal; we’ve raised $675 in four days!!! You guys rock!
