She ran the Baltimore Women’s Classic this morning and is already looking at future races. She was a bit disappointed in her time but for someone that hasn’t been running for very long, it was a great accomplishment. She’ll only improve from here.
On my end of the running spectrum there’s not much to say. I’m still taking a reprieve from running and have only gotten in a couple of runs that last three weeks. Tomorrow is my return to it, I think, and will be prepping up for a not-to-distant race as yet to be determined. I had planned on the Pikesville 5K as my next race, but on Friday I had a consultation for laser eye surgery, and now I’m scheduled for PRK surgery on the 8th, a mere two days before the race. For those that don’t know, PRK is an alternative to traditional Lasik. Instead of the laser slicing a flap on the cornea, with PRK the top layer is scrubbed off. Typically there is a 4-5 day recovery period which, for some, may cause pain and extreme light sensitivity. It’s probably not the best thing to run a 5K while drugged up and being blinded by sunlight. Therefore I’m on the look out for another not-to-distant race. Also, I’m about 95% certain I’ll be running a late September half-marathon. There is one on Maryland’s Eastern Shore that looks like fun. Plus we can make it a weekend spent at the beach!
