I ran 3 this morning and I remembered my headlamp.

dnaff had a 10k today. Weather looked iffy out that direction.

ijen has some kind of race today. I assume it's a tri, but I don't know the distance.

I'm watching a triathlon on TV. ITU world series, Rotterdam, women's grand final. Really just waiting for football to start.

No good football on here today. Just the big colleges pummeling the poor little guys

Hey gang I got first, second, and last!!   The Masters overall was in my age group so even though I came in 2nd to her I got the 1st place award.  And, because we were the only 2 in the age group, of course I got last as well:laugh:    And my husband also came in 2nd and last in his group.   Low turn out today because there was a duathlon the next town over and that took a ton of people away.

The race director said he thinks next year he'll add a 1/2 marathon to the 5 and 10k mix and move it out into October when there are fewer competing races.  I'd be up for that.  Never run a 1/2 that I didn't have to drive an hour to get to.

Heat and humidity prevailed.  High 70's for the 9am start.  I did well with my pacing thru 4 miles but in 5 and 6 I had to switch to a run/walk combo.  Mile 5 was on the canal towpath, blazing sun and not a breath of air.  I was so thankful to turn into the shady park (cc course) for the last mile.

We got sunblock, coozie cups, wrist bands, first aid kit, a long sleeve dryfit and a weirdo buff thing in our race packets.  Awards were insulated water bottles - really nice ones!  The buff thingy can be a neck gaiter, a balaclava, a hat, a headband, a ponytail holder, or an extra layer around your midrift depending upon how you tie it.  I'm having a lot of fun with it!  Thanks for reading my race report.  Now Jen, it's your turn.  I hope you kick some butt.

Congratulations!  So did were you awarded all 3 prizes?

This sounds like a race that really cares about the running community.  I have three of those buffs given out at a local 50K over the years.  I love them.  Way to go out there, Dawn!  October should make the race cooler and perhaps prettier with the fall leaves.

Power walked this morning and getting ready to head to the UTSA football game for some pregame festivities.  Looking forward to it.

Enjoy your Saturday!
