A perfect running weekend?

Tonight, I’m packing for a trip to Tennessee for the 2011 Tennessee Ragnar Relay. I’m not actually running, but I’m very excited about experiencing the event as driver of van #2 for Team 196 Proof. It’s the first of many overnight cross country running relays that I get to participate in over the next 12 months. I’ve been planning this relay since June and it’s kind of hard to believe it’s actually going to be happening on Friday morning.

Tomorrow morning is the district championship meet for the cross country team I coach. Both the boys and the girls should easily make it through to the regional championships and both teams have a pretty good shot at being district runners up. Who knows, if the day goes well, perhaps one of them might even pull out the district championship. The meet is at a very familiar course and the weather looks to be perfect. It should be fun.

So, after packing tonight, I’ll be coaching the district meet in the morning, then hopping on a plane to Nashville, then driving to Chattanooga. On Friday morning, the relay will start and we’ll run 196 miles to Nashville where we’ll celebrate Saturday night. On Sunday morning, I come home. I call that a fun weekend.

After that, time will undoubtedly speed up as Thanksgiving comes and goes, then Christmas and New Years and on to the Florida Keys Ragnar Relay. The next two months are going to rock!
