I didn't prepare for this race like I normally would. I went to a BBQ on Sunday night where I ate more than my stomach needed and drank a beer or two. I didn't get a good nights rest and when my alarm went off on Monday morning, I felt as though my head had just hit the pillow. Both Michelle and I were on the same page though. We both agreed that we would run this race for fun, stopping when we needed/wanted to and taking advantage of the random stops and foods along the course.
One reason I love this race is the random foods that people hand out. Our first bite mid-run: Doritos.
Another reason is the slip-n-slides that people set up. I remember regretting not doing this activity last year so when we reached the one below, there was no way I was going to pass it up (and I was taking Michelle down with me).
This left us both soaking wet from head to toe for the last 3 miles of the race but we didn't care - those 5 seconds of being an absolute child was worth it!

We made it!
