Race Shelter. Harbor no misgivings.

I had the long conspired good fortune to see Susan today and go for a jog on the course that we will run tomorrow morning. She, being less than a week removed from moving is pleading for mercy and forgiveness if she fails to break 30 minutes. The way she ran this morning I am hoping the extra jog today will help bring her out of the rusty state she's been in. Cross your fingers for her.
I, on the other hand, was toiling too but when we got to the beach I took one look at that long clean expanse of low tide beach to run on and I took off without warning to run down to the breach way and back barefoot. My knee issues have gone away. The challenge of barefoot beach running renewed my confidence in secure muscle groups in my foot, ankle and knee; so I am pumped about tomorrow's race. My PR on the course is 25:40 but I'd like to push it down to something under 25:20. Cross your fingers for me too.
Many of our old time (from childhood) friends are here including some I haven't seen in 35 years. Our cohort will be well represented in the race tomorrow. I'm hoping for no worse than 2nd place among my peers.

Thanks for timing me in the race today, David! Did you really say 28 something? Whoo Hoo! And you looked magnificent--you blew by all of us!!! See you at the beach:)

I believe it's all "said and done" (by reading Susan's comment), and it sounds like you had a great race! Can't wait to read about it :-) Happy 4th.
