Dave, if you see this before the race, just curious what time are you and Michael starting the race and what's your expected finish time? I think they are starting in waves, so I wasn't sure when you all are scheduled. I'm not sure yet, but I might volunteer, so I would love to make sure I can be in a spot and the right time to cheer you guys on if I can indeed be there as a course volunteer.
Take care and you are going to do GREAT!!!!Sending all the positive energy your way!
You are totally the sweetest! I wish you all the blessings and the best this weekend. I love that you have the passion, focus, and desire to do your best, and I really feel it will be a wonderful experience for you! I can tell what a great and good person you are, so no matter what, you are already a winner and #1 in life. You're a gem in this world! Cheering for you and Michael!! You all are going to do fantastic, I can feel it!!
Yay!!! I literally have goosebumps of Joy for you! You are going to be phenomenal team!!! I am cheering for you!!
You are both going to fly and be so strong!!!
Can I give you a celebratory toast in your celebration after! I feel a great weekend at the du for you!! Good luck!
The first person I thought of is my friend Michael Cary who won overall the 5K I ran last weekend. He is awesome runner! He runs 17 and 16's. I asked him and I do believe he can do it with you if you want him to! He is on this Richmond Roadrunners friends. under "Michael Cary".
You are going to do super fantastic! I will look and see if I know of anyone! I could do 5k's in the 19's last year when I was running a lot. I did one of my very slowest last Sat. in the 20's after not racing any 5K's since last summer and taking the fall/winter/first part of this year off, so I am only getting back into it again. I wish I could do 18's! The duathlon will be so exciting! Someone wanted me to the the off-road trail running part for Saturday. Unfortunately, my schedule is filled Sat. and I wish, but I can't do it then, so I was thinking how fun it would be to do the Sunday.
I do know some people who can run that fast in the 18's and I can ask them to get in touch with you if they could make it Sunday!
Best wishes to you! I can tell you are going to do super phenomenal, Dave!
