After five years of injuries, setbacks and life interruptions, I was finally able to get to the starting line of a marathon. I had big plans and had some goals that I felt were quite attainable. Unfortunately, the race didn’t go as planned and I ended up struggling through the last 10k and missed even my “safe” goal time. There are a few things I could have done differently and a few things I would adjust for next one. While it’s easier to point to a few things that didn’t break my way during the race I know the bottom line was, I just didn’t get it done.
October Indoor Track Update!
I wanted to put a quick post about the indoor track project. This is moving so fast that I feel like any information I share will be outdated by the time you read this. In the past week, a few things have transpired, and I wanted to make everyone aware of where we are as of now.
Cross-country was my introduction into running. I joined my high school team as a freshman and have never looked back. Usually, around this time of the year, I am thinking of my days of struggling through the dip and Hereford or the seven years of competing at Van Cortland Park. However, while the leaves are screaming for fall running, my head is wrapped up in the confines of the indoor track.
I have a unique perspective on the growth of the store. While our official grand opening was August 19, 2014, to me, it was born that February of 2014. My youngest son Cooper was just born, and while I had a few days off work, I needed running shoes; this is where the idea for Run Moore was born. Each milestone achieved, both of the store and my son, is inseparable for me. People ask, “How long has Run Moore been around?” And to me, the answer is, “Long enough to tread water in the pool with floaties on.”
