You wouldn't believe this but I overslept for a race this morning. I was to do the Norwalk 7 miler this morning and I slept thru my alarm. I've gotten up late and have made it to races at the start, but today was different. I woke up after the race started, the race started at 8:00 and although I am only 5 mins or less from the start there was no way I was going to make over.

Although very disappointed, I went back to sleep and went out later afternoon and did a nice 11 miler that included the 7 mile course from the race this morning. I'm glad because I do feel a little better and man was it a gorgeous day to run the sun was out but the humidity wasn't there. Gosh I'm glad I ran today.

Oh, yeah. That's a vitual 7-miler. No problemo. It's what we do sometimes. Nice run/race.

Some days are not meant to be raced but to be run.
Love your new homepage

Other races will come, don't worry. I remember one day, 2001, I arrived 2 minutes late at the start. It was a wonderful experience to reach and overtake the other runners... but at that time I had 2 legs!!!

I've been missing things recently because of over-sleeping. Don't worry though... Sometimes your body is just calling out for sleep! Take it easy :)
