Well my husband is one race closer to reaching his goal of 50 half/whole marathons by the time he reaches 50 as of yesterday because he ran the Bydgoszcz half-marathon.
What made this run a bit easier compared to most of the other runs he has done is that the start/finish was just right down the street from our house. It was nice to head out of the house just 45 minutes before the start of the race compared to usually a couple of hours for most the other races. That and there were just over 1,000 runners which marathon standards is small so it made it really easy to get around doing all the pre-race stuff.
The weather was beautiful for being the middle of October! We could not have asked for better weather for the race this time of year. Now what the weather will be like for the Santa Claus marathon that he will be running December that might be another story!
Oh the other big excitement from yesterday we watched Rachael’s volleyball game on TV after we got back from the marathon.
I could never figure out why people yelled at the TV during a football game and now here I am yelling at my TV during a volleyball game! Good thing I have fake nails or I would have bitten all of them off during this game. They lost unfortunately 0:3 but hey there is always the next game! Watch games on TV verses watching it in person is just not the same and can’t wait until she is up here in November!
Now if you could run a marathon anywhere in the world where would you go? Me, I don’t run marathons but I would love to cheer on my husband in either Scotland or Australia!
