Time To Rock and Roll!

We have arrived at Missoula!  And it’s been a great day!

We left Lake Stevens Friday afternoon and stayed the night in Spokane, ate at one of our normal gastropubs and had a nice walk around the downtown.

Saturday morning before we left Spokane, we were very lucky to meet up with Renee (The Revenge Wogger) and her husband Keith for coffee.  This lovely lady has been through so much the past 6 months… double mastectomy, chemo, and another laparoscopic surgery that she just barely had on Thursday.  I was amazed she was willing and able to meet up 2 days after her surgery.  What a strong woman, and such a positive attitude!  Her and I became friends last year through our blogging.  We discovered we had the same sense of humor and attitude, then we discovered we both are from Arizona… and the list goes on and on.  She used to be totally anonymous… but not anymore.  I introduce to you Renee, The Revenge Wogger, who is now a cancer survivor! (yay you!)  What a beautiful smile!

After driving another couple hundred miles, we finally arrived in Missoula.  We only had until 4 p.m. to pick up our bib and race packet, and we arrived around 3.  The expo was outside under tents, quite small considering the popularity of this race.  Still, I have no complaints.  I wasn’t really in the mood for a big expo.  We took a walk along the river while we were out and about.

We also got to see Jeff Galloway speak.  And we ran drills with him!  I actually got coached by one of the best running coaches ever!  So now I have a plan for tomorrow!  Total score!

And in about 5 hours, I get to wake up and head to the start line for my 5th half-marathon of 2016.  When I see you next, hopefully I’ll be one bling richer!

For Slow Runner Girl… looky what I found today!! Does this count?!! (treasure hunting while running… it’s a great thing!)

    I’m sorry I’ve been so out of it with my own troubles, I hope you had a marvelous half! How great to hear Galloway and run with him — score indeed!

    And of course meeting up with another blogger is always the best. I might just be back out in the fall. 🙂
