The weather was nice and chilly, even misty from time to time. I love when the weather is nice and cool for these things. Heat can turn a good time into a bad time pretty quickly!
Next year I MUST get better shoes and maybe wear two pairs of socks. After the first half or so I took off y shoe to find that I had two holes in my sock and was very quickly forming blisters. Shortly after the back of the same shoe started rubbing up against my ankle, rubbing off the skin. Well I kept going, just moved a little slower. Made it to the finish line, took me 59 minutes this year....after the pain started I really stopped trying to run/jog and ended up walking most of it.
Like I said before, I don't do this to be the fastest or to beat some magical time, I do this to DO this and to have fun! The time doesn't matter to me. What matters to me is that I got off my butt and did something active on a day that most people use as an excuse to sit around and be extra lazy!
Hope you all have a happy and safe 4th of July!
