    • When the perfect is not so great. Memories make you smile. And the future gives you hope.

      But I am using my downtime to connect more with people. When I was racing and running all the time, I didn’t make the time.

  1. Oh, I love how you shared what you would have been doing during a “normal” racing season 😉 As you know, I usually have a full fall racing season as well…and it’s looking rather bleak this year. It’s more of a blessing than anything, given my stress fracture, but still a buzzkill.

  2. One of my favourite races every year was the 5k Turkey Trot in Naples, Florida.
    Short, great fun and a pumpkin pie at the end.
    None of that this year… Even the race would happen, we can’t travel to the US as the borders are closed for tourists.
    Let’s see what 2021 looks like.


  3. In normal times I would probably have a race scheduled for every weekend in September/October and a Turkey Trot in November. I’m sad that there will be no in-person races this year but that just means that I won’t take in-person races for granted next Fall.

  4. Well I would have been going to the Wine Glass half in 2 weeks for a fun girls weekend. I am not in half shape anyway but they have offered some virtual options that should work for me so at least I can earn my medal. Will probably do a virtual Turkey trot.

  5. Ugh. It’s so hard to think about this. In normal times, I would do Global Energy 10K (doing it virtually), the Evergreen Pumpkin Run, the Turkey Trot and probably the Pink Up the Pace 5K for breast cancer. Not in that order. I miss normal times.


  6. I think you have an in person Half, don’t you? I got an email about it, but it’s not a weekend I can get there. I may do the Cocoa Classic if I’m here. I’ll do Ted Corbett virtual most likely
