Lacing up our shoes with the timing chips - truth be told, I could have had a much better time because JJ and I got our chips mixed up and I put his on by accident. I could have been 10 minutes faster...shoulda, coulda, woulda!
Here's a photo of me between mile 2 and mile 3 - more truth telling....we were actually on a "water & walk break" here, but I saw the camera guy and "got my run on". You can tell by the laughing and smile on my running buddy's face that it was pretty funny...notice how she started to run also, with her water cup in her hand!Right after the run, we cruised the vendor tent area - filled up on some fresh baked pretzels, goetta sandwiches and cashed in on the 2 free beers.
After a nice long nap, shower and some R & R on the couch, it was time to head back to Hyde Park Square for the night. Some great music by a local band called The Rusty Griswolds, great company from my running group gals and of course more adult beverages. It's been a long time since I've partied it up like that, so we topped the night off by grabbing some late night munchies....stuff like loaded cheese fries, wings, and all that good & greasy stuff. It was so much fun and a great way to end the day!
