Trac, Sue and I have been training to run the Bud Run 10k race in September. All three of us are getting are milage up there and being pretty disciplined to get out for a long slow run on Saturday's. This past Saturday Trac did 4.5 (woo hoo) and Sue did 4.25 (another woo hoo). Sue did this without running during the week!! Which is awesome, but Trac and I both were on her to get those mid-week runs in so she doesn't injure herself. We want her at the start line with us! With all this training I was tempted to try the Boilermaker next year.
The Boilermaker was this past Sunday and the news wasn't good. Someone died. Although there was a pre-existing medical condition, this isn't the first death at this race! I don't know if I want to run a race where 4 people have died even if it was over 30 years. Plus, I heard mixed race reports. Some people love running with 15,000 people and others, not so much. I think might be in the not so much crowd.
