Annapolis 10-mile Race: photos, part 1

Starting our walk to the stadium at 6:40 a.m., we were greeted with a blanket of humidity and typical August morning temperatures. I had No expectations and no Goal time; start slow, find the pace-of-the-day, enjoy some “trials”, enjoy the run, SURVIVE.

By the numbers…..

Night Before:
Hamburger: 1 (Protein+Carbs+YUM)
Brownies: 2 (can’t resist…..)
Beers: 4 (uh…oops?)

Hours of Sleep: 5

Race Day!
Ipod tunes: 0 (not allowed!)
Sweatbands: 1 (testing)
Water/Gatorade Stops: 2 (to be smart)
Hills: 6+ (I lost count…)
Cones I almost ran into: 3 (at least)
Miles: 10!!
