I'm famous...not really!

5 miles on the schedule today - done!...ouch, a cold one today at 51 with a feels like temperature of 46 degrees!  We go from 99 degrees to 46 degrees in a few days???  It actually did not feel this cold out there but I did wear long sleeves for the first time.


Hey, I'm famous!  Okay, at least in Northern Michigan.  So my wife is browsing through a local free paper when we were up north and she say's, "Here's the Waters festival that starts with a 5k."  They had a picture in there from last year's race.  There I was!  Haha.  This was a really small race, 48 people, so of course, I'm in the front.  I would never line up in the front but I did end up being one of the top runners(13th) in this race.  This is the race that I received a popsicle stick for my place.  Ha!  Here's the picture of the newspaper:

Ok, what's wrong with this picture?  I must be the only wuss that thought it was cold that day.  Come on, it was in the 40's - that's cold!  Haha!

It's funny I had to wait a year to get a picture from this race.  See the crowd, that's everyone!!!  Seriously.

Have a great day and.....Keep Running!!!!!

  2. Explain why a Michigan Runner is not in shorts and a singlet when it is in the 40's?
