8K tomorrow

One year after my very first race ever, the 4th of July Sunrise 5K of 2006, when I placed. By serendipity alone, not that I had any idea what I was doing.

The first two miles or so of the course tomorrow are uphill. I am not happy about that, but I better start being grateful pretty soon. The marathon in two months from now... the first eight miles are uphill.

Tomorrow I dread two things. Finding a parking spot. And the sunlight. At the poolside, a couple of days ago, I burnt my nose raw. So pathetic. A ton of sunscreen won't protect it from the sun tomorrow. Since the race will be over by about 8 am, I think I will survive the heat.

Happy Birthday, America!

Wear a hat to protect that nose! I don't like wearing hats at all, but rain will force me to it, and if I've gotten too much sun I'll do it. Have a great race tomorrow and a wonderful holiday!
