One of my fav races and Cyndi Glass has become a friend since I first volunteered 3 years ago. This race was my first time running (and working out) since May 3rd. Lots of drama -- whiplash followed by vertigo -- and then for grins and giggles, a stomach bug. Ran the race with a friend who cannot tolerate heat (we thought it would be cooler). We walked when she or I needed to. Thankfully a lot of the running was in the shade and there was a light breeze. My fitness level was much better than I anticipated after 3+ weeks of no activity. Bonus, I live close enough to walk to the race site. It was a low key, easy run. Had a great time and I got to meet a fellow club member - Nicole (don't remember her last name).
