It's taken me a week to get this one up but hopefully it was worth the wait. The training schedule I'm following called for an 18 mile run today. The problem is I had a 5K on this day so trying to squeeze 18 miles out of 3.1 is a bit of a task. What I decided to do instead was wake up a bit early and hit the popular running routes around my house. Then, I'd bike to the race, run the race, and finally bike back.
It was a very fun experience and I couldn't have asked for anything better. The weather was great (albeit hot but tolerable), the people at the race were very nice, and the bike ride was great. Here are the two running events for the day.
