1 More Week
My first run from my new apartment! Not very exciting but as runs in the middle of a major city goes it wasn't too bad. I ran a well known loop around Lake Union, which I must say needs some improvement. I think my next vote for Seattle city mayor will be based on whether park like loop around Lake Union is in the candidate's platform.
I did get to see Crowther at the start and finish of the Fremont 5k. I wish I was running as strong as him. But that'll have to wait for at least awhile. Too many other irons burning in the fire right now. I'm glad he got his new PR and even though he got outkicked, I'm sure he would have killed that guy in a 60 miler!
I hope that the weather in Anchorage is as good as Seattle is today. :( The long range forecast is for RAIN. Approximately 55 degrees and raining at the start. Not exactly ideal, but maybe the cold/rain will keep me from overheating and I'll run fast anyway.
I'm down to less than $1200 from reaching my fundraising goal :) Everyone I've asked so far has been very generous. I have a few more people to ask in the next few days, but if you know anyone that might want to help out, PLEASE send them this way for me :)
