Today is another Track Thursday – busy day at the track with our last invitational meet of the year before the big meets that start next week
Thing 1: Mother’s Day Run this Saturday
I’m pretty excited for this Saturday’s race! There are quite a few friends running this race and a few students! There is a Girls Running group at my school being organized by one of the phys ed teachers (the one that ran Boston), so a number of girls will be running the 5K. P is away at a conference this week, so a very kind friend has offered to come to the run with his nephew and have a little run around time. So, that means I will be attempted a run for a PB this weekend. It is possible!
Thing 2: Water Station!
Things are gearing up for the Ottawa Race Weekend – which means plans are well underway for our school’s water station. We are running one of the aid stations along the marathon route. I’m pretty excited about it. So far I have about 22 students signed up, a few staff and a few random community volunteers. It should be good times, but there is quite a bit of behind the scenes work. Not only do I have to go to a meeting on Wednesday, but I also have to scout out the area with the head organizer, talk to head of supplies and get everything ready/keep all the volunteers informed. The day should be a lot of fun! Except the part about being at the school for 5:30. Ew.
Thing 3: Track Today
The track meet today went very well – a few PB’s, lots of top 5 finishes and the weather held out! I am exhausted now thought as I was at the track from 10am-7:30pm. I helped out with the hurdle crew today, which involved the steeple chase. I totally put the steeples on too soon, but what do I know, I usually just watch the water element 🙂
