The review of my experience at Citi Field continues…
The man that led the event (Donovan I think?) ran the running portion of the clinic. My goal prior to attending the event was to slide into a base. I bought special socks to protect my skin. I thought about how I would explain to my boss why I was calling out of work Monday because I injured myself at Citi Field. (Would she really believe me when I told her I injured myself on the field? Or would she think the ‘author’ was getting a little more creative than usual?)
Unfortunately, there was no sliding allowed:( The good news is I was so happy with all my time on the field I forgot until the end of the event! The bad news is I did ‘slide’ in the outfield (Translation- I fell flat on my face running after a ball. It wasn’t pretty. Thank you to my throwing partner, Linette, for pretending it didn’t happen:)
I’m not a huge fan of running (although, ironically, I have won a 5K in my age group). I’m never going to run a marathon. It’s doubtful I’ll ever run for exercise, although I am inspired by my friend Jodi who when we met didn’t like to run and now participates in 1/2 marathons! But baseball related running was awesome! My personal trainer (also my friend Jodi) may want to keep this in mind- making something baseball related for me and it’s not work:) It’s fun!
Have a great Thursday!
