St Louis Rock n Roll Half Marathon

This race was a total blast.   Partly because it was so close and mainly because I ran it with my brother.  The race started at 7 a.m. and we hooked up and left around 6:10 a.m. and still had plenty of time to get there, park and get to the starting line on time.

Originally, I had requested off work for today but since I’m heading out of town again this week I thought I’d pick up some extra hours …as I sit here and my legs tighten up, I’m not sure how smart of an idea that was.

The spinning medal was totally cool and looked much better in person.

The guitar pick in the middle of the medal spins! – and I’m easily amused so – this did it for me 🙂  We got that medal for running on both days of the St Louis Rock n Roll Marathon Weekend (5k yesterday morning and 1/2 marathon today)
