Adriatica, everyones favorite Texas Croatian village. There was a nice amount of wind and rain this nice morning but the temperature was perfect at about 45 degrees.
Here is everyone waiting before the race waiting under neath a covered parking beside the start line. I thought this was a little sad for these people who are about to go and run 13.1 miles in the outdoors but they have to wait till about two minutes before the gun goes off to stand in the slight rain. Now all of these people did finish in front of me but I was the lone diabetic laughing at them under the carport.
One thing I did figure out about this race is that you probably should train for these long distance runs. When I got to about mile 8 my lungs were cooked and that threw off my heart rate even though my legs felt fine I could not push it through the lungs. So next time I will do more than just one day a week training. The blood sugars held up real well and that encouraged me alot.
