05 May - Sun

Broad Street Run - 10 Miles
- Closing I-95 right where I usually exit, creating lots of extra traffic.
- The subway ride to the start is always fun. SRO.
- Thousands of runners singing "Sweet Caroline" at the start. That song will never be the same.
- More than 30 minutes to get our corral across the start.
- The strange guy near me at the start with no number showing and wearing a bandana across his nose and mouth. ?? Enough others were talking to him that I figured he was OK.
- Poorly timed pit stop cost me 6 minutes at mile 2. And another much shorter one later. (I'm getting to be like Sara.)
- Kids in wheelchairs cheering us on in front of Shriners Hospital.
- The guy who threw away his not-empty cup on the back of my calves. NO, thank you. Which caused me to try to breathe the water I was planning to drink. Left me struggling for a good half mile. (cough, cough, cough)
- All-in-all, it went pretty well. Haven't seen the official results but I think I was 4 or 5 minutes faster than last year (when you subtract almost 7 minutes of pit stops).
