Six weeks ago . . . when Tom agreed to be on a relay team for a run in early April . . . I'm sure he never truly anticipated snow. Or below-freezing temperatures.
Oh, he knew it COULD happen. (Because spring is a fickle beast.) But, really? What were the chances????
Yep. There you have it!
And . . . totally committed to running this thing!
The Kal-Haven Trail Run is a 33.5 mile race along the Kal-Haven Trail - a rail trail that links Kalamazoo with South Haven. Some people run the whole thing on their own, but most people choose to split the course up and run it as a relay. Here's Tom, above, just about to overtake the woman in orange neon near the end of his 8-mile stretch. Tom ran as part of a 6-person co-ed team -- with friends of ours from the gym.
I was f-f-f-freezing just watching and taking pictures. (Good thing I had my Stopover sweater! Never thought I'd still be wearing it . . . in APRIL.)
After the race . . . best part! Mexican food (and margaritas!) in South Haven.
And then out to the beach . . .
for a walk on the pier. (Where it was so freakin' cold!!!)
(But it was sunny.)
Great day to be on the trail... despite the weather!
