TODAY WAS THE DAY OF THE PANERATHON 10K! As I mentioned earlier this week, stepsofsunshine and I planned to finally meet and run together!
I was actually able to find my way to the race area without that much trouble, so that’s always a plus :)
We coordinated beforehand how to find each other by wearing certain stuff (my hat, her headband). When i got to the racing area, there were SO MANY people wearing what she said she would be, so I wandered around looking for puppies to pet (I heard there was an SPCA truck, don’t judge me), until she just came running up to me and was like “HI!” Truth be told I thought I saw her from a distance, but I was kind of scared to just walk up and be like “hello I am the person from the internet.” It was so nice to just meet someone and automatically hug each other <3
We talked for a bit before the race started, about life, about school, and running. Once the race actually started, we just kept on talking, but (as it usually goes with running conversations) we got into deeper topics; recovery, diet-culture, etc. It was so uplifting to hear such insightful views from her, I feel like not enough people share their true thoughts like that. Such a breath of fresh air :)
She thinks she might have been dehydrated, so towards the end and finish of the run she wasn’t feeling too great. At all. We ended up stopping by the Ambulance to get checked out and see if everything was alright (it was), but I feel bad that this happened at our first meeting together :( stepsofsunshine, I hope you’re feeling better by now!
All in all, it was a great race! I can’t wait to meet again for a run, coffee, or both! <3
