Not a great weekend weather-wise for running events, but we had a good time anyway. Saturday was rainy, a little warm and very humid, while the big races on Sunday started out at 72 degrees with 87% humidity and got worse from there.
The whole family headed down to the capital on Saturday to attend the kid events. The tall one ran the 5K with me in just under 40 minutes, while the short one ran the one miler with me for the first time. Both needed a little encouragement to finish, but everyone was very proud afterwards.
I knew three people running the full race. Congrats to the two Miller wives for making it all the way despite the heat (even though I’m sure they are unhappy with their times, which were about 25-35 minutes slower than they planned). My co-workers friend wasn’t as lucky–he got black-flagged and the medics forced him to quit.
Cheering for people on Sunday along Summit almost got me excited enough to start training again.
