Day 176! Decided to sign up at the last minute for a new race, the Summer Solstice 4 mile run in Yorkville. I’m glad I did! It was hot, hot, hot, ran past 3 dead animals and there was sucky traffic on the road. I had to stop while a truck and camper decided to turn around because he didn’t want to wait and he blocked the entire road. I had to run down the ditch to get around him. I almost had to spit out my one free beer when they called my name for the awards! I couldn’t believe they called my name! I got a third place medal for my age group! Yay me! Maybe it was my new lucky Turtles shirt! Go do something new!
