Two weeks out from Ironman Wisconsin, recovery mode is still in full force. Though there’s been some easy swimming and biking as well as a welcomed return to my yoga mat, there’s been zero running – and, won’t be for at least another two weeks. So, I was a little bummed to not pace the 8:30 group at last Saturday’s lululemon run: twin k 15k, but instead did the next best thing: volunteered at the finish line, one of the best places at a race.
It was a perfect September morning along Summit Avenue in Saint Paul… crisp and sunny with a hint of color change in the trees. Nick and I met up with some friends who were running (thanks for pacing, Sonia and Nick! And, hi, Julia, Jess and Amanda!), and I finally met a few twitter friends (hi, Anne, Megan and Nick!). Ami and Finley joined the fun, too, for Finley’s first official race. #futureironwoman :)
In true lululemon fashion, the music was pumping and luon covered the course (the next SeaWheeze?). Race highlights: a drone, bacon station, dunk tank, mannequin high-fives and pint glass finishers “medals.”
Check out the pics Nick took while biking along the course!
