This weekend Marty and I will be racing at Lake Norman, part of the NCTS. Lake Norman is a large lake near Charlotte, and this particular race takes place right near Davidson College. It’s just a sprint, but everyone knows how much I enjoy those! We did this race two years ago and two things have stuck in my memory:
1) a very hilly and hot run
2) a fantastic post race spread of food
I weighed the pros and cons of racing at Age Group Nationals this weekend, but staying local and trying to get more points towards the series, plus the fun factor of it all made this race win out. The competition won’t be anything like I would’ve gotten in Alabama, but our checkbook will thank us.
Some of you may remember that Tassie has a heart problem (valve prolapse that causes enlargement and the lining to thin) and that she’s on blood pressure medication for it. Her checkup today was good and the vet said her heart sounds the same which should mean that it hasn’t gotten any worse. It definitely hasn’t curbed any of her activities and hopefully never will. You cannot believe how excited this dog gets when we put on our running clothes, I wish I got that excited to run!
She has also updated her blog.
