A what was supposed to be a relaxing but ended up being a tough 12 miler in the park on a humid hot day awaiting a thunderstorm to clear out the muggy’s. I forget that on stretches like the past week, there are no easy runs.
This pic from near the finish of Friday’s 5k, I look like I’m smiling. Not sure, I might’ve heard something funny, I don’t remember. Don’t remember feeling that good. People tell me I’m often smiling in races, and it looks like it again. If I have an inner joy, it seems to show up in road races.
