if someone can’t wake up early to watch you race, then they don’t deserve you
She wears short skirts
I wear jerseys
She’s cheer captain
And I’m screaming at the TV SCORE THE DAMN GOAL YOU FUTBOL IDIOTS!
The Cranmore Hill Climb is a gritty ascent-descent race on the New England mountain running circuit. The joke is that it’s the easiest race to PR in… but that’s only because the course is always changing.
After years of watching me take numbers at the finish line, my buddy Tim told me I had to cross that finish line myself sometime. I laughed him off and said I’d be too scared to try, but he was persistent, so I finally picked a year to run: 2013.
Of course, in 2013, the race was selected to be the NACAC Mountain Running Championship, so I got a lot more than I bargained for, but I wouldn’t have had it any other way. I wrote a race report the day after I ran, but now it’s almost a year later, and I want to get some reflections down before I go to cheer the 2014 runners on…
