|After all this hot weather, no longer self conscious about shirtless running!|
Tuesday night was the third, and when our community does its fireworks. We headed over to a friends house without the girls as they were up north with my in-laws. We had a great time relaxing, eating, drinking...all things that I normally would not do before a race, but a holiday is a holiday!

We got home and to bed before 11:00, so that wasn't too bad. When I woke up the weather was already in the 80s. I made the decision not to run with my Garmin, just a regular stopwatch, hit the sprinklers and have fun with this race. I saw a few people I knew before the race, so I chatted with them, even a Jennipede alum! The race took off and away we went. There were quite a few people out there running, I tried to stick to my plan to not overdo it. A running friend Jenny zoomed by and said hello. I was tempted to try to hang with her for a bit, but stayed smart and ran my own run. The miles went by rather quickly, but after mile 2 it really was HOT. I dashed through as many sprinklers as I could. They were awesome. Thank you Hales Corners peeps! I had frozen some Gatorade in my handheld, so that stayed cool the whole race. I was pleased with the run, wanting to be around thirty minutes, and was only off by a bit. After the race I was able to chat with Jenny some more, and Luai who was directly in front of me during the Jennipede.

A quick shower and we were on our way up north, where we got to see our girls who we hadn't seen since Sunday, yay! More on our trip to come!
