A Memorable Ride

RnR I was very fortunate to go on a very short ride today.  Only 13.1 miles.  But it was alongside the male racelead leader at the Dallas Rock and Roll Half Marathon.  At first there was a pack of six, but eventually, Jacob Krolick pulled ahead of everyone.  Then it was just me and him navigating the streets of Dallas.  My job was to make sure no one got in his way and we took the correct turns.

And if you know me at all, I couldn’t help but slip in some words of encouragement once in a while (there were some serious hills on the course).  Jacob was a joy to watch.  He was so consistent and strong, averaging 5:20min/mile the whole way.  He finished in an incredible 1:09:52. 

I had to pull off right before the end, but I was fortunate to run into him afterwards and get to hear his perspective.  He was very thankful for the support and told me his key to running fast is to “relax.”  Easy for him to say! šŸ™‚rnr end
