Wouldn't you want to run on a FLAT trail that had these views??
|I was that runner who stopped during the race and took pictures|
|Friday night, folks dress up like pirates to run|
|Lots and lots of runners - look at that sky|

I'm not used to running in the afternoon....it's kind of weird to try and fuel for a run that late in the afternoon. I was thankful that I was not waking at 6:30 to drive over for any of the morning races. Jill picked me up at 2:30 and over we went. The course was said to be flat but I was still a bit worried as the longest I had run was 12k to this point. Adrenaline would carry me, right? 500 runners lined up and we were off. The first 1.5km or so had incline/declines...which also meant I would be running these same incline/declines at 14km or so.
The trail was completely flat...and it was beautiful...and HOT...so very HOT!! The salt water on both sides of the trail sure did look inviting!
|1.31 for 15....average of 6.07/km|
I'll take it for my longest run in 14 months

3 medals (one lights up and one spins), and a visor.
