Today marks a very special run day. Not only is this the last of the double digit 5K runs (10 remaining), I also was honored to be able to run with one of my real life heroes Jordan Flores! Jordan qualified for the para-triathlon national championships this past year!
Jordan had a 4 mile recovery workout planned, so I decided to do his plan with him. I programmed the workout on my Garmin 910XT watch and off we went. This is the first time I’ve run farther than a 5K in a long time.
With my recent calf strain problems I should have been reluctant to run much past 3 miles. However, I was so honored that Jordan wanted to run one of my last 5Ks with me that I threw caution to the wind.
Jordan is a winner in every way and inspires me to keep pushing forward. His high energy and positive outlook is contagious. I first met Jordan at Lucky’s Lake and our friendship continues to grow. I’m sure we will see even greater things from Jordan this year!!
The actual run went by very quickly for me as we talked and shared stories about triathlon races and such. Also, the left calf pain that was trying to take me out yesterday, was non-existent during the run. 355th 5K
