Sitting in my car here at 7am on Sunday two hours before the High Cloud Snapple Half Marathon is set to begin. We will traverse 13.1 miles on the C&O towpath to run our race today. It is currently 34 degrees.
Why am I here so early you ask? Because there is about 1/4 parking for the whole of the racers and I didn’t want to take a shuttle. My seat warmer is on and I put little hotties in my shoes while I sit in the car. Ah the things we crazy runners do…
I have no goals today other than to finish. I didn’t train for this, I just wanted to run it. So, no lofty thoughts of PR’s today. I am not a “race number on = racing” person anymore. Sometimes I run races just because I can without worry of time or place.
Do you ever run a race just because? Have you ever done something crazy just to get a decent parking spot?
