I'll start with Saturday's events. I got up at 5:00 am to get in an easy 5 miles because Keith and I had to leave for his indoor track meet at 7:30am. Keith and the Loudonville track team ran the Akron University facility,which by the way is a very nice indoor track. Keith ran in the 4x800 which placed 5th, 8:54.11, the open 400 with a time of 1:00.58 and the 4x400 but I don't know time or place. Kyle, ran at Capital University and won the open 800 with a time of 2:00.20 and placed third in the 4x400. A good day of running by the Lemke's!!
Today, I went up to CNVP and ran the Run For Regis Fun Run. I got in 21.5 miles on snow covered trails that turned icy and slippery and then mush :( The race was put on by Tanya Cady and was put together very well with a well marked course. Thanks, Tanya, for all your hard work! I ran with Mark Carroll for the first 8 miles or so until he decided to pick up the pace and leave me in the snow! Great run, Mark! Then at about 10 miles, I noticed my back starting to ache. I think it was because of all the slipping and sliding. Other then the back, I felt fine and glad to be able to run the 20 miles. Although, some of my friends ran the 50k and watching them come in kind of stung because I wanted to be out there with them :( I was being smart, so everyone says!! I'm alittle sore and stiff but hopefully will be ok by morning. My plan for tomorrow' will be a swim and maybe in the afternoon after I loosen up, I'll lift.
