I'm standing at the start line, turn on my ipod, and NOTHING. I turn it on and off a few times, still NOTHING. It's dead. Oh. My. Gosh. I had charged this stupid thing all night long! And it's dead! Now I have to run 10 miles with NOTHING. You'd think I would've learned by now to test my electronics before I leave home, but no. I like to learn things the hard way.
So, I ran 10 miles without music. And I didn't die.
|Not sure what's going on here, but something was funny.|
I got a lot of compliments on my shirt from Gone for a Run!
Running along the runway was the most difficult part for me. You go from running on a gorgeous course, with little streams and trains, to a LONG, boring runway. I know if I'd had my music, it wouldn't have been nearly as bad.
|We ran several miles on this runway!|
|When I first saw this lady, of course I had to look twice.|
I saw her out of the corner of my eye, and thought "oh no, her pants are falling down!!"
|Train in the distance|
|Coming in to the finish!|
This was an excellent race. The aid stations had Sword hydration and water. One of the aid stations had volunteers from the kids local soccer team. They were AWESOME! They were all so encouraging and cheering us on.
At the finish line they had chicken from Zaxby's. I can never eat right after a race, so I had to skip that yumminess. They also had homemade churned ice cream. You KNOW I can eat ice cream at any time though!
I might've gone back for seconds too....hey, it's an addiction, I can't help it!
After the race Amy and I went to Copper River Grill. It was great catching up on life with her. She is super fast and got a PR!
This is a race I will definitely be running again!
Who else ran or raced this weekend?
