I got to the park a bit early to start the cheering. While I was cheering on runners I saw a man that I stood behind at the portapotties at Rock n Roll USA! How funny! We bonded as I yelled that to him! I also saw a guy from run club and cheered him on too. Talk about a small running world!
Soon I saw Shawn running towards me. So excited! He looked great! He left and right behind him was Kristi and the girls. They saw him as they were driving in and finding parking.
Shawn looks great as he runs by.
Now the fun was going to start. Those girls are too funny! Kristi and I decided we need to classify their cheers into "Never Say that to a Runner" and "OK to Say to a Runner"
In the Never Say that to a runner catagory:
Keep running or you will die! (umm..runners do not like to be reminded of death..they are already feeling like death so please do not use the word die around them)
If you run faster you finish faster! (While this is true..runners are going the fastest that the can at the time..they do not need you to mock their speed)
In the OK to say to runners catagory:
You are the MASTER! (many seemed to like this one..or they were just surprised by this one..either way they were smiling as they ran past)
Girl Power! (the girls liked this one!)
Surprise Cowbells (the Cowbells would be shown from behind them..very shocking!)
Was not sure how to classify the yell and the "run faster to get away from my voice" cheer...that one didn't last that long.
Shawn finished and did great! It was a fun day cheering on Shawn with Kristi and the girls! Why is it that I am just as tired cheering runners on as I am when I run a race??
