He writes back, "I'm signed up for a 3K tomorrow."
Me: Really? Where?
Dale: Murdock Trail
Me: Cool! Where does it start?
Dale: (forwards me a link to the race site) http://www.summitraces.com/lengthenyourstride.html
Me: 5k and 1 miler
Dale: 5k not 3k
Me: Have you run that far yet?
Dale: I will tomorrow.
And that is how my husband does things. Not a lot of planning. Not a lot of over thinking. Just action:
In the words of our friend and CrossFit Coach, Keena (Ultimate Peak CrossFit):
"He said he wanted to run a race this coming January, but needed time to get ready. So, Friday in class we were talking and I mentioned that the "Lengthen Your Stride" running series is awesome and held right on our local Murdock trail and that they would give him a FREE entry in honor of his own awesomeness.. and he agreed that he just needed to get out and get the dang 5k under his belt.. and HE DID! PEGLEG RAN A 5K!! BLADE RUNNER RAN A 5K!! OH YEAH! A BIG HUGE THANKS TO SUMMIT RACES/LENGTHEN YOUR STRIDE RUNNING SERIES FOR GIVING DALE THIS TERRIFIC OPPORTUNITY! You guys are great!!"
