Accomplishment

by Karen July. 25, 2009 513 views

Today Rick and Ricky participated in the Annual Picnic Run. This race is 5 miles and coincides with the Brookville Community Picnic.
This was a big accomplishment for both of them. Rick, at 41 years old, started “training” 4-6 weeks ago for the race. He was a runner in high school, so he was comfortable that he knew what he needed to do to be ready. He actually bet one of the younger guys with whom he works $20.00 that he would finish first, so when there is money involved, I guess you take it seriously. Ricky also got involved and did most of his training with his cross country team. He did run at night with Rick when he swam in the mornings.
Both of them did very well today. It was rainy and yucky and hard. But they both pushed through and never walked. They were dog tired when they finished, but after a few minutes, they were smiling and the thrill of their accomplishment was apparent. Big congrats to both of them. I am very, very proud.
