Ran six miles last night. Thought I was going to melt. Tomorrow is the Another Dam 50k in Englewood, Ohio. The course is flooded, so there will be a surprise alternate course that will consist of more pavement than the normal course. I just hope there is some shade because it will certainly be hot tomorrow. I looked online and found a Starbucks near the race site so afterward I’ll be able to load up on caffeine for the drive home. Probably an ice cold mocha frappuccino.
Last weekend I ran the Dino 15k in Brown County State Park. Spent the night in a rustic cabin about a mile from the start. Very nice. Same course as last year. My time this year, 1:16:21, was only about a minute faster. I had hoped to do better. I guess I held back too much early in the race. I finished the last couple of miles very strong. I wound up second in my age group, 23rd OA. Regina ran the 5k and finished 3rd in her age group.
