The Moment. The Medal. The Memory.

2016 Her Madison Finisher Medal Reveal 4:45am.  The alarm goes off.  Where is my other shoe?  Oh crap.  I’m late.  She’s going to have to wait for me again.  How many miles are on the plan this morning?  Urgh, I can’t find my watch.  Out the door. 6:00am.  Everyone in the house is up.  I’m not ready for them to be up yet.  You never told me about the science project due today!  Yes, I’ll see if there are any waffles left.  Get downstairs. 6:34am. Dishes in dishwasher.  Laundry in.   7:42am. Why is it that when it’s my turn to drop them off at school, the drop off line is the absolute longest?  What is this, the Great Wall of Minivans? 7:57am.  I’ve got 3 minutes.  I’m totally grabbing a coffee.  I need coffee. 8:30am. Boss calls me into office.  Project deadline tomorrow.  Co-worker just quit, now it’s my responsibility to pick up the slack. 10:10am.  Email from my sister.  Completely forgot she & her husband are visiting this weekend.  Must go grocery shopping.  Must clean guest bedroom. 11:45am.  Totally just crushed that sales report meeting.  I’m the master of excel spreadsheet.

You show up race morning, run your race, and you go home. That is not our race. You will not find that here. Our race is about details; it's about the experience from the moment you make the commitment and register months in advance all the way until you fall asleep Sunday night, back home resting well after accomplishing your race. Our race is about connecting with other athletes, and more importantly, connecting with yourself. It's about what it MEANS to be a runner or walker. We do not impatiently short cut anything. Detailed though, planning, and execution go into every single thing we do at Her Madison Half Marathon & 5K. The 2016 Her Madison Half Marathon & 5K participant shirt is [...]
