This year’s BolderBoulder Memorial Day 10K road race will be a bit different.
For the first time, after previously running it over 25 times in the past 3 decades, I have predicted my finish time to be over 1 hour. It will probably be well over that… yet I’m still very excited.
No, I haven’t recently suffered a stress fracture in my foot, nor am I completely out of shape. On the contrary – I’ve actually already run nearly 50 miles this year before the midway point, so I’m on track to more than double the total number of miles I ran last year.
Actually, the reason for my slow prediction is that I will be bringing another generation into the BolderBoulder “experience” this year!
Tobey will be participating in his first BolderBoulder this coming Monday, and has done a great job of training for it – mostly via family walks the past two months. My Dad, aka “Gramps” will also be walking with us, so it will be a three generation event!
Look for us in the “PC” wave that starts around 9:15AM on Memorial Day. My Mom and brother-in-law Brian will be running in earlier waves also.
Hope everyone has a great race this year. I’ll report back next week on how it went!
