7/22/06 Lakefair 8K

One of the great things about the Pacific Northwest is the moderate climate. Great running year round. In the summer it cools down every evening and does not warm up to hot until after noon. Except today. Mid 70s early in the morning. Humid and getting warmer at the start. New course this year, very flat out and back along Capitol Lake, then around the lower lake. Billy and Tammy running the 8K, Tammy and Jared running the 3K race.

Start - It is really warm for running.

Mile 4 - I am wilting, really slowing down

Mile 4.98 - Done. Shuffle back a few blocks to cheer on the others. Slow time can be blamed on the heat. Stick around forever for the awards ceremony.

80th of 328
