spiffy official bright orange flag. You got it, I was a course marshal this morning. This intersection was a busy one for the runners because it was just after mile 1 and then the runners came back through and mile 7 was just after the intersection. I heard lots of garmins beeping during my time there. It was great! The cross road was large enough that I was working with a police officer...he directed traffic, I directed runners. It was awesome. When I was finished at my post I returned my official gear to the finish line and cheered in some friends as they completed their 15K.
This afternoon I did go for a run. I started my training plan for my next half (1/1/11) and I took this past week to assess my running, where I was, and how far I had to go. I decided today I'd start my training plan with a 7 mile run. I did 6 by myself and then picked up my favorite running partner (for short runs); Maddie and I ran the last mile together. I really don't think she could be happier than when she's running with me. My favorite pup is out of practice because not even .5 miles in and I had to clean up after her. While I love running with Maddie, I don't really like running with a bag of dog crap. I'll take it though because it makes her so happy and I will always clean up after my dog.
