Last Sunday (yes, this is a little late) I met up with Oiselle teammates Laura and Jessica, plus Laura’s husband Josh and their adorable little boy. It was pretty cold out in City Park and there were very few spectators for the Rock ‘n Roll Denver Marathon (half marathon, relay, etc). I was pretty shocked how empty it was and felt bad for the runners. I guess I’m still used to the NYC Marathon and even the weekly NYRR races in Central Park bring out a lot of spectators. I have a sneaky feeling it’s because people in the city just didn’t know it was happening. There was hardly anything on the news about it during the week leading up to the race, no signs throughout town and not even much notice about street closures (which seems to be a habit in this town when it comes to any races).
But we were out there and I had a cowbell in hand! Our new teammate, Julia, was racing and we saw her twice since we were in one of the best spots on the course and caught her on an out and back. She looked great in her Oiselle singlet and was all smiles!
After watching and cheering, we had a little Oiselle Team photo shoot, courtesy of Laura’s husband, Josh the Photographer.
It’s a good thing we were running slow for the camera or else I’d never be able to keep up with these fast ladies!
Jessica and I contemplate how to get warm fast as we show off our spike bags!
Check it out, Laura can jump!
Behind-the-scenes shot. It was so cold!
Fun way to spend the morning. Definitely much better than the rest of my day as I ended up on the couch feeling miserable. Thankfully I’m feeling better now and had a great run this morning!
What is keeping you busy this weekend? * Do you spectate races or just run them?
