Proof is in the Pudding

I have continually been amazed by the administration of the 10K I ran on Saturday.  Not only was it an awesome course and very well executed, but to top it off they had many different people taking pictures and apparently even an unmanned aerial vehicle taking photographs and video from the sky!  The aerial stuff isn’t posted yet but I’ve looked through literally a few thousand photos of the event……… and all of them are posted for free!  How awesome is that? 

As I mentioned in the post race report, it was a tough course and even had a river to cross, well guess what?  They got a few pics of me crossing it.  So here’s the proof this was not your ordinary 10K.

Water station about mile 3.

Just starting to cross the river.

check out the wimps in back heading for the bridge. Not me, I bravely (or stupidly) trudged through the river. 

Tomorrow I have my first speed workout.  4 X 800.  The weather is supposed to be in the 80’s making a decent day for sprints.  I plan to run them at the track at work, probably around 3:00.  Wish me luck!  I foresee some sore legs on Friday!

Holy crap! You had to run through water? Does that mess up your running shoes?
