Many people think that because I run long distances this race is easy. I knew it would be fast, something I no longer run. When my first mile clicked off in 6:36 I knew I had to slow it down, or my lungs might explode. I finished in 18:02 for the 2 1/2 miles. I was pleased with that, second alumni and eighth overall. My only regret...forgetting to snap a picture with my niece after. Jason and I ran two miles back to my parents after the race, hitting way too many hills. :)

We were going to head back home, but after assisting my parents in a pond makeover, Jason was tired, so we decided to join my friends for pizza and drinks at Uno's in Platteville. I love their pizza, and really love their Long Island ice teas, I had mine with strawberry lemonade instead of soda, delish. We were also able to meet up with my brother and his wife.
We met my parents at a church festival when we got back to town, running into a few more friends that I don't always get to see.

So although I was tired on Sunday, and only ran a mile on the treadmill, it was worth it. My streak is coming to an end on Labor Day, today is day 92.
Such a great weekend, great friends, great food, great drinks, great time. How was your weekend? What are your plans for the Labor Day weekend?
