late this afternoon, i met up with my friend ken. we had planned to visit at s’bux – but all tables were taken when we arrived! so we walked over to the huether, instead.
[sidenote: i have known ken for over seven years, we met through the store - ken worked p/t with us for a few years until he "re-retired" about four years ago. ken still comes out regularly to run club, so i see him fairly often].
remember, i had vowed that i was going to arrange a visit with ken asap so that i could pepper him with questions about his JFK 50 mile experience last saturday. today marks six days since the race – i thought ken might be hobbling around, but no – he’s feeling great and back in training mode!
IF i ever was to do a 50 mile race, the only one that interests me is the JFK. i wanted the scoop on everything about this historic race: ken’s opinion of his training, the trip to maryland, the course, the race day experience, ken’s recovery. ken was so gracious about answering my mega questions – we had a wonderful chat! ken’s wife, bonnie, also joined us so i was able to get the spectator perspective, as a bonus.
photo of the day: friday, november 23rd:
coffee hot chocolate and tea date with ken and bonnie was also outing #21 for the kiki project – that’s the 50%-of-my-age mark!
when we exited the huether, there was all this white stuff flying around in the air…noooo!!! november 23rd is too early for snow! make it go away!
