|Start of the "50K on my 50th":|
Solo start in the dark at Weekapaug Breachway
|Along my run just before sunrise:|
Yeah, we live in a really ugly corner of the world, but somebody has to live here
|At least my run was completely flat, like|
Buckeye Brook Road, Shumankanuc Hill Road, Burdickville, Chase Hill, Potter Hill
|5 points for correctly guess where this is. (I truly did see this on my |
50K run; it wasn't one of those ethereal hallucinations you get on marathon runs)
|I made it! Mile 31, run finish line before a dip in the ocean.|
|Longest run of my life, and a pretty long run for FiveK as well. |
Thanks, guys, for getting me there.
|Although I truly wanted no gifts, I did receive some gifts of distinction|
that fit another skill set that I have worked hard at acquiring: fine spirits.
|... and some funny gifts for my apparent urinary and constipation issues of a man my age!|
(Don't laugh, Mike B, you'll be asking to borrow these from me soon!)
|... and finally many funny b-day cards, interspersed with an anonymous|
gift certificate to Camire's (hello new shoes!) and a RoadID engraved
with age listed as "Over the Hill" - only 1 guess allowed on who did that.
