He said we where going to run “around” the field. I felt a little guilty running “on” the field.
Josh Whitman, the University of Illinois Athletic Director hosts 4-5 mile run on game days. While it makes for an early Saturday morning, we decided to join him at Hessel Park in Champaign before the Rutgers game. He took us on the exact route he ran before the Wisconsin game as he didn’t want to jinx the good karma Illinois has going.
It was a workout and a lot of fun. Ashton continues to be the biggest AND only Alabama and Illinois football fan.
A big thank you to Josh for the donuts!
5K around campus to support an important cause.
The sign said... run the steps and burn 40 calories. So we ran the steps.
We had to shame Shannon into running. She won her age division. Not a surprise. Ashton took a 5th and I got 3rd. The General Dacey Trail near Lake Shelbyville in Shelbyville, Illinois is a beautiful setting for a race.
I'm Michael Smith and I hope to have a very productive midlife crisis over the next 500 days. Some people buy a sports car, I'm going bowling.
