At 4:00am, tomorrow morning, my alarm will be going off.
At 4:45am tomorrow morning I will just be parking my car.
At 5:00am tomorrow, I will have finished my coffee and start walking over to City Park in Denver.
At 5:15am, I’ll be starting my warm up for a 6.4 mile run.
When it gets to 5:45am, I’ll have taken off all my warm clothes and be waiting in Coral A with a bunch of other eager runners.
And at 6:00am, tomorrow morning, I will starting the first leg of the Colfax Marathon relay for the third year in a row!
As always, I am running with four other lovely ladies that all work for the City of Golden in some way. Consisting of HR, police officers and rec center employees, our ladies relay team, the Golden Foxes, are racing in the Colfax Marathon Relay – The Government Cup to try to raise money for the Foothills Animal shelter.
A couple of years ago, we placed 4th and raised $1,000 for a different Golden charity. I hope we can do it again!
Chances are, when you finally read this, I’ll have finished the first leg of the relay, approximately 7:00am, and be patiently waiting around the expo for the rest of the Golden Foxes to finish so we can celebrate!
Check out my recap from 2014.
Have you run any of the Colfax Marathon weekend events??
