Tecumseh Disclaimer

Here's my pre-Tecumseh disclaimer:

Unfortunately I haven't run since 11/17. Ouch. I have been part-busy, part-lazy. All I will say is that I'm not expecting to have a great time for this race; I just want to finish. It'd be great to finish just one second before my last year's time of 4:58. Even though I haven't run in forever, I'll be depressed if I don't beat my previous time since that was my first run on a trail, and first run on more than one incline.

The race is one week from today...and maybe I'll get in one-two runs until then. Don't worry, I'll finally be done with school in a few weeks and my plan is that with all my new free time, I'll have a wonderful new training schedule for the first time. Woohoo!

Hey, do you mind if I barrow your disclaimer for my blog? lol. except I don't think I'm going to worry about beating my time from last year. I haven't run since 11/12! Good luck this weekend!

Woohoo! I'm so glad I won't be the only slacker out there! Good luck to you, too.

Good luck, Clara. All 6 of us are leaving NE Ohio on Friday morning en route to Tecumseh. We'll be at the Inn for 2 nights. We extended our stay so we could just celebrate on Saturday night. It looks like we'll be headed to the Upland Beer brew pub...online, it looks pretty good. http://www.uplandbeer.com/ Luckily for me, it's my first time at Tecumseh, so I don't have any times to beat!

Good luck to you guys, too. Maybe I'll see you out there. Good idea with the brew pub; I've never been there but it sounds fun.

Here in the city there's about .25 inches of snow...we'll see what this weekend entails.

Hey Clara:

After you left me in your dust after Indian Hill I ran into Josh, who ran the Mohican the same year as me. I told him that I ran into a young woman who was interested in the Mohican and he said "was her name Clara?" Small world, eh?

Hope you had a great time. It was nice to meet you and I will see you on the trails.

Hey Brian!
Good to hear from you; how did you finish? Sorry I have left you! I don't know what happened- I somehow had a boost of energy. It was fun chatting with you for those miles, though.

That's so funny that you ran into Josh- I was looking for him but didn't see him.

Hope all is well- I'll see you at Mohican in 09!
