First race in over a month. Felt good. Didn’t prepare my race gear the night before, like I usually do. Woke up a bit late so didn’t eat my whole bagel. But I grabbed my needed gear and got to the starting line with time to spare. A slower pace than I was hoping for, but I finished and got my medal. And it was my first run in the new city. Some of the route was familiar. Some of the route was new to me. Wasn’t trapped by packs of runners. Actually spacing was really good. Didn’t feel trapped. Need to start carrying my ID more often, missed another beer tent. And the food truck rally. Guess I will have to try this run again next year!
