Wounded Warrior Half Marathon
Last Sunday I ran the Wounded Warrior half marathon. Last Sunday was a Sunday in June. I live in Texas. June in Texas and half marathons do not mix. You can tell how please I am with my decision to run a half marathon in June in Texas by the expression on my face in the photo below. The entire 13.1 miles I am thinking to myself “this sucks” and/or “I am an idiot”. The best part of the race was at mile 6ish when the guy in front of me took the last of the water. Yes, they ran out of water at a half marathon in June in Texas! Oh what a race! Will so NOT be running that race again.
Because I like to torture myself (perhaps something I should talk to Dr. Phil about) I did actually register for a race that is in July in Texas but fortunately this race is at midnight. So while I will have to deal with the heat I will at least not have to worry about getting a sunburn too. After that race I swear no more summer races (at least not in Texas)!
