It’s really a gold medal kind of day when you decide at the last minute to run a 10K during what was meant to be a weekend off on the St. Lawrence River and end up being the first female to cross the finish line. (Disclaimer: this was a very small field of runners in a very small town…so I’m not bragging as much as it may seem!)
And I wasn’t the only one who “medaled” last week (apparently the Summer Olympics has turned medal into a verb). Team Kennedy-Simmons-Schibuk all had noteworthy performances (Jamie was third overall!) and we’ve got the gold to prove it.
As if our awards ceremony sweep wasn’t good enough, my sister Liz capped off the day with her engagement! Jamie popped the question on the village green of Thousand Island Park, and next July they’ll be tying the knot up north (which I am just now realizing might conflict with next year’s 10K race–uh oh!)
Congrats to the happy couple! Looking forward to many more miles together.
