To Allison,

Thank you for your comment and for letting me know the power of the written word. I truly hope that I did not offend you with my description of you in my Race post. I liked your hat and your red hair, you have a unique style that sets you apart. It is such a small world, you and the barefoot guy with the Dog (Hi Sean!) both read the Race Report. Thank you both for your comments, he said that some people did not run the whole course... URGH!!

Amazing that was your first 5K!! CONGRATS on a strong pace and pushing yourself beyond your limits. Keep up your training there are some amazing 5K races in this area. The Snoqualmie Railroad days 5K is coming up and it is a GREAT flat and scenic course. If you need any training plans or info please email me tallmomontherun (@) hotmail. I am glad that I could be a part of your first 5K, I just wish I had been more aware of you, I did not even look back :( In fact I thought you were an adult, I had no idea you were young until you passed us.

I feel this was a missed opportunity on my part and for that I am sorry. I could have cheered both of you on. KEEP Running!!! You will be amazed the things you can see and the people you will RUN into. Good luck in all that you do, keep that COMPETITIVE fire going, even if it leads to heavy breathing, you will know you gave it your all and that is GREAT!

Aspire to Inspire,

Tall Mom on the Run

PS. Don't buy a new hat!!! Be Unique and be you!!
