Who ever had the excellent idea to start the 10K race this morning at 8am was on crack. I have never been sooooo freaking hot racing. And can I throw in there was no shade? And that for a part of it - we where directed to the wrong way? So the lead runners had to turn around - after running about a 1/2 mile off course. After that, I knew it was just going to be a training run.
The inaugural SunRun (I should have taken a cure from the name!) was this morning. A few of us got together to help support Gulf Coast Community College and brave the heat - and enjoy the post party. They had the awesome $25 a day beach rental chairs(the cushioned ones!) for us loung on along with a ton of food and a photographer that would take you photo - print it out (with the SunRun logo) and give it to you. YES. You read right - GAVE IT TO YOU. Take that ASI photography! Karen won the 10K overall, I was 6th (third in age group) and Jeff pulled the over all masters in the 10K. It was a fun morning - and even Jason came out to cheer us on :)
But other then that - nothing too exciting going on on the training front. Just running with some swimming and biking thrown in. I'm really getting excited about the ING marathon in Miami (or possibly another one closer in Jan)and just trying to get on a training schedule with the new job ...which is going awesome :)
For IMFL Jason and I are going to have a homestay - which we area very excited about. I ran into a friend of mine today who helps bring the athletes and homes together - and mentioned that we might be having a swiss pro. I CAN NOT WAIT!
Congrats to everyone who raced this weekend!!!
