September Races

This month we did a December themed challenge, because there is no way in hell we are running in December. Kyla was on an email list for a company that does a Home Alone themed challenge, a 5k and 10k with a chaser medal called Little Nero’s Challenge. Since we were one race short of our goal, we signed up and will end up not counting the 5k. We just had to do the challenge because the chaser medal is so cool!

We did the 5k very early on a lovely Friday morning on the Jordan River Trail (of course). As we get further into fall, I get less and less upset about the lack of shade cover and try to enjoy the magnificent mountain views.

On Sunday, it being Sunday and all, we were able to start a little later in the morning on the very same trail. About three minutes into the run I felt a terrible stinging/burning sensation in my left calf. I was pretty sure that my calf had snapped in half – because what else kind of injury haven’t I had yet? But I turned around and there was a wasp stinging me. Which was a relief?

We stopped briefly so Kyla could brush the stinger off my calf, the wasp had moved on by then. Other than the stinging feeling, I felt fine. I have no known allergy to wasps or bees, so I decided that we would continue the 10k. Fortunately that was the worst thing that happened on our run.
