Today run the Sarasota Ringling Bridge 4 miler with my daughter, Addie. Finished 34:17 watch time and 35:07 official clock time. Felt great. Temperature at race start was 43 degrees F. with little wind. Cold for south Florida. They used chip timing but used the gun for scoring. About 2000 runners so getting to the start took a while with a lot of bunching in the early 1/4 mile. It quickly spread out when we got to the beginning of the bridge at about 1/2mi point.
Up to 13 burpees. Skipped today.
Next race Sarasota half Feb 15, 2009
Special Olympics track season started today. Glad to see all of the athletes. I help mainly with the running events. No limits and no quitting for these athletes. They are an inspiration to all.
High School track starts Monday. I wish these kids were as motivated. Nevertheless, there will be lots of good times and many good memories to come.
