So, I ran my second race today. It was a BIG race in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It took 9 minutes for the pack to cross the start line...thousands of people!!! They combined the 10K, Jenn's first (my bff) and the 1/2 marathon so there were some slower people from the 10K that I was kinda tripping over for the first 5 miles, but then they turned off to go to the finish and we were free to find room to find our pace. It was a beautiful day!!! 60-70's during the 2 hour run and
Yesterday, some idiot set off two bombs near the finish line at the Boston Marathon!!! Who does this? So now our basic American constitutional right of congregating in a peaceful manner is at risk? Moron!!! This kind of stuff pisses me off, there is no reason for it! If you are sick, which clearly you are, go sit on a bomb in the woods and blow yourself up; leave us athletes and other innocent people alone!
This is it, my 51st birthday, my first race in the 1/2 marathon in every state quest!!! Waukesha, Wisconsin...I was really nervous and it was complicated by the fact that I agreed to dog sit for a friend and his 4 months old puppy is apparently THE DEVIL!!! She woke up every 2 hours and barked like a fool, so then I'd take her out and she would sit and look around...for 20-25 minutes...silly dog. So, the run...this was my first chipped run, they give you a Velcro ankle wrap
