Saturday morning was a Shake Out run with Bart Yasso and Deena Kastor. It was seriously a gorgeous day for a run. Bart is such a cool guy.
I saw Josh Cox again. I first met him last year at the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Half Marathon. Well, I didn’t meet him at the race but the day before the race at another shakeout run.
Deena is a speedy woman! I could not keep up with her.
The first 50 people that arrived got a free gift from Asics. I was number 45. The gift was a cool backpack, an October copy of Runner’s World Magazine (happy about it because I don’t have that issue), a pair of Asics socks (so soft but I gave them to my mom), and a bib holder by FuelBelt.
I stuck around for a little bit and then made my way back to my car. It was about a mile back so I walked slowly while enjoying the sunshine and seeing all of the runners possibly enjoying one last run before the race. And then I saw Joan Benoit Samuelson. I said “No way” because I was surprised that I saw her at that exact moment. However, she was running so fast and my slow legs seriously could not keep up with her. I couldn’t even get a picture of her. But at least I did see her. So even though I don’t have a picture it still counts right?
