Run with the boys in the double stroller.  Peter was our designated navigator and got a kick out telling me where to go when we approached a fork in the road/trail.

Legs felt good. My warts are starting to bother me a bit...but, I really want to avoid another round of bleomycin or cantharadin.

Run with Peter. Legs felt great. Peter got out of the stroller to try running on part of the trail but only lasted about 50 yards. Maybe a bit longer next time.

It's amazing how much slower my natural pace is when it's muggy outside. But it feels good to sweat.

The course has a little over a mile of grass, which was pretty wet and sloshy due to recent rain. That made for a slower time than I would have hoped, but I still beat my time from last year by 1 second. The fellow who won first stayed on my tail until mile 2vthen passed me and slowly gapped me over the last mile. I ate two bites of a banane with a bit of honey drizzled on top abou 45 minutes before the race, but nothing else in the morning. I could tell I was was running on empty and my body was in need of fuel. Good lesson learned...nutrition matters for short races too.

I ran during the boys' afternoon nap...it was hot and humid...I stopped at two parks for water on my route. Glad I usually run in the morning.
