Massive Bummer

Okay, ya know the Monument 10k I've been talking about off and on for the past week, getting really really excited about? Yea, that one. Totally bummed now. Seriously.

I got a message from Mom yesterday saying that my Great Aunt died this week and her memorial service was tomorrow at 1. Mom didn't think she was going to be able to do both, so she was not going to do the race. (Total selfish moment here!) SMELLY!!! I totally understand her reasoning. But I'm still bummed about it. I love doing this race with her (even though we've only done it one year before). It's just a great time for us to spend together, while walking and talking. But there is next year. I'm going to try to make it to my Great Aunt's memorial service after the race, but its going to be tight. I think I can do it. I just REALLY have to finish the race in 90 minutes now!

You wanna come walk with me? PLEASE??? (yes, I'm begging. HA!!)

The other reason I'm sorta bummed about this race is at my start time, 10am, it's going to be 40 frickin' degrees!! YIKES!! COLD!!! WTH!!! Last year wasn't warm, but I think it was like in the 60's. Perfect race weather. This seems a little cold to me! But maybe it's perfect too. Once I get moving I might appreciate the warmth. *sigh*

Okay, I'm done whining. But seriously, if you want to come to Richmond to walk the 10k with me, just shoot me an e-mail. (Yes, I'm still begging!! LOL!!)

It's a really fun race!!


  1. I'm all the way in Washington (State), but I'd do a virtual 10k with you? What would my starting time be? 7 am, right??

  2. That would be awesome! 7:01 am. Yep! Thanks!!
