I heard this rumor about the time I had just finished an 11-mile tempo run at 7:44 pace. I thought, "HA! Bring it, Little T! He better pack a lunch, because he's going to be out there for a while breathing our dust!"
Well, as you know, I'm on the DL and cannot run and even walking causes calf pain these days (yes, I've been concealing this fact. 4 weeks post-incident and it still sucks and makes me depressed.) Anyway, I was disappointed I would be a no-show for the show-down and was really counting on Army Doc to pull through for our team.
But oh no - Army Doc was walking this year too (something about the tequila shots)!
You know what? Little T was "sick" this year and didn't even come for the walk! I think this was pure fear holding him back. By default:
Older Folks = 2
Little T = 0
The Swedish SummeRun is a fantastic event, dominated by walkers. The teams are amazing and I don't think you could walk among them without getting emotional. So many people have been affected by ovarian cancer and sadly, there are few screening tools and detection is often so late that treatment isn't effective.
Amidst the emotions, we always enjoy ourselves. This year, walking allowed me to enjoy the sights more than last year...
