My Wife's MDRA "Mississippi 10 Miler"

>> Monday, May 29, 2017

Just a few days ago, my wife's running friend Megan asked my wife if she wanted to do a race this weekend. It was the MDRA's "Mississippi 10 Miler." It was a gun-timed $15 race along the river. Nice and cheap. She couldn't turn that down.

The boys and I showed up to cheer near the turn-around (which was near Hidden Falls just 3 miles from home). We got there just as the lead runner and the lead bike (Tom R) went past:


Tom and the lead runner, heading back 5 miles to the finish.


Charlie, giving me a heart attack as usual.


Lots of runners starting to show up!


Megan running off as Mama stopped for some high-fives!


Heading back again from the turn-around. "Go Megan! Go Mama!"


Hugs and high-fives!


A long hug for Mama as Megan runs off smiling.


Smooch for Mama!


Running off in the distance.

My wife's done 18 marathons, something like 12 half marathons, 2 Ironmans, and 8 Half Ironmans. But this was her FIRST 10 miler! She did better than she thought she would, finishing in around 1:31! She said it hurt, but that running with Megan and chatting the whole way took her mind off the "full body cramping." Nice job Hunnie!

Now, I'm off to the Brian Kraft 5K this morning! (See race goals at the end of Saturday's post.) Back with a race report as soon as possible!
