My friend Bill had given me a code for 50% off, so that made this race even more fun, I love to shop and love deals!
I was in the 1:00 heat which was strange for me because it presented a little thought of how to eat in the morning. Also, I was hanging around the house, it didn't seem like a race day.
I left my house as the girls were eating lunch, and they planned to come up and see me near the start. My brother, who was also coming into town for the Brewers game was going to stop in with his wife and one of his kids. I was excited about that.
When I got to the race, I picked up my packet and found Bill. We had planned on runinng together and trying to go for a 1:45. This sounded doable and I was looking forward to the run. The start was delayed for a few minutes due to technical issues, which gave me a few minutes to chat with my family who had arrived.

I was glad this race was over, frustrated by the pain. My legs felt great the whole time, but my side made it not possible to do what I wanted to do.
Saturday night, I relaxed kicked my feet up, enjoyed a delicious brown IPA while watching the Olpmpics.
The strange thing? My side still sort of hurt!!
Sunday I did 5 miles feeling great, but later in the day my side started to hurt again and worse. Now I am wondering, did I pull a muscle? Do I have another hernia (I have had 3 but none were painful)? Has anyone had something similar to this?
I just want it to go away, I've got a streak to continue.
