The Fastest Nap 💨
On Saturday I celebrated my 30th running anniversary by returning to Cajun Cup in Lafayette, Louisiana. In 1988, at the age of four years old, I ran the kids 1km fun run while my Dad ran the 10k.
It was extra special to watch my two eldest, Alessandra (6) and Holland (3), run the kids race - now a one mile. Aley ran a massive personal best time of 10:30 and Holly ran her first ever race alongside my wife. Aley sprinted through the finish line and continued on through the chute passing medals, water, and bananas as I frantically yelled for her to stop!
Maya (1) joined me in the 10k for her first ever stroller race. The Guinness WR was a thought, not the focus, on the day but conditions did not cooperate, after coming through 5k in 16:16 (on WR pace) we hit a halting headwind. By then Maya had fallen asleep as I pushed us to a 33:55 finish for 5th overall.
It was a huge confidence booster being only 6 days post NYC marathon (2:34) and coming off a less than ideal month with a strained calf. Everything felt great again and I was happy to share the day with my own family.
The Cajun Road Runners has to be one of the best running communities I have come across. They treated us like family and they all stick around to the very last award even with it being a little chilly. (Beer and hot jambalaya might have something to do with it.
On to the next 30 years! Thanks to my own parents and my wife for the support and encouragement through the thousands and thousands of miles.
