Christy and I had done this race last year, it benefits prostate cancer. I like doing races that are for a cause. It was 83 when we left the house at 7 and there was a strong wind. My goal was not to place but just to finish. I haven't run as much as I should and I have been sick this past week.
We arrived in plenty of time to scope out the place, have to know where the porta potties are.

There seemed to be a lot more people than last year and also they changed the course from last year. Still had 4 hills but the start and finish were moved.

You might say this was the perfect race for Christy. She finished before me and we didn't stay to hear the winners. In fact we were home before 10.

I carried water on me and used it to cool off my arms, neck head and back. The wind made running up the hills hard and I decided to just walk them.

I had to wait until the results were posted on line before I got my time, 42:41. Not one of my fastest races but for the conditions I was happy. I also placed third in my age group. That was a surprise.
