Typically I’m the one racing, but this weekend I took a seat on the sideline and went to support the hus in a mountain biking competition.
Me and mountain biking do not mix, so no crazy ideas you’ll ever find me in one of these races. Andrew however is naturally athletic and happens to be a dayum good mountain biker. It was fun helping him get all set-up for the race, including making the best peanut butter and jelly sandwich – tasty fuel. I cheered from the sidelines and watched him come in 4th overall and tops in his age group for the mini-marathon.
Later this month I’ll be cheering on Norak as she goes out for the Nashville Rock & Roll Half Marathon.
It’s awesome to be able to support and applaud my family and friends, and it’s something I encourage us all to do more of. This week, be it at a race or your local gym, go show some support for a friend. Your enthusiasm and encouragement does wonders for motivation.
What’s the best cheer sign you’ve ever seen at a race?
