Notice Chris is doing some manly passing-of-the-chicks. Not one to be chick'd, Chris would have done this to me and left me in dust.
See Chris' race report here!
OK, so back to BS...
He took off and I played Where's Waldo? on about four parts of the course. Cowbelling him and peppering him with POSITIVES was easy because he NEVER looked tired, fatigued nor ready to slow down. He pulled off this race as if it were a little training run.
OK, so now the hard part for me...
He beat my 5k pr and GOAL for the race by over 18 seconds. A group of friends saw him cross the finish line and they were the first to inform me. I screamed, not with glee but of frustration. How long did I think this running streak would last for me? Not long, in reality, but I had been hoping. So the more fit BS has become, the stronger he is running. I'm afraid we're back to those college days when I would run along behind him, gasping for air and praying he was ready to cool down.
Ah, his game is on.
Congrats Honey, you are one mighty fine MAN, HUSBAND, BEST FRIEND, RUNNER and grandpa. Let's not forget that you are a grandpa. A might fine grandpa!
Hmm...when is our NEXT race and how hard will I have to work to keep you from beating my time???
GOOD JOB, Chris. See you in Scripp's Ranch in July!
Do you and your SIGNIFICANT compete like this at running or other activities? Have you found it to be FUN or ???
