Well, so much for a 5am start today, but I was running by 6:30 (granted, a far cry from 5, but still earlier than some days). I'm still trying to sleep off the exhaustion from driving through several nights last week, but am feeling more rested for sure. There was a rainstorm last night in Brookings during the night, and by morning the feared heat wave had moved on. We were blessed with amazing weather this morning- never got over 80 while I was running! There was a cool breeze, and the course was really beautiful. Friends from Seattle Adam and Jaime even came out to help cheer, and lead me through the course- so fun to see them out there. With a little earlier start, we had plenty of time to get back and I got a great massage, nice chilly ice bath, and got cleaned up, and we were off for lunch at a bagel place. Then back on the road for a wonderfully short drive to Fargo, ND. We've now made it safely to Fargo, and are excited to just relax a bit in the room tonight and get another good rest tonight. Having seen the movie Fargo, I was expecting Fargo the city to be much smaller, but it actually seems like it's a pretty large city- I'm looking forward to checking out 26.2 miles of it tomorrow morning!
