Day370 Saturday 09/03/11

ran 3.1 miles
Today’s post is a little late due to some technical problems. I think I’ve got it under control now.

I ran a 5k yesterday in South Louisiana while Tropical Storm Lee was passing over our heads. Rain and wind were coming from all directions. The weather was not extremely bad at that point because only outer bands of the storm were reaching us, but it still pummeled us. I enjoyed it. It was a tiny battle in the perpetual war of man versus nature. There were many turns on the route and street barricades wrapped with orange caution tape to help direct the runners were being blown over at every turn. Volunteers were there to help guide, but after the second mile there were no more people to direct and the barricades and tape were tossed all over the intersections. I ended up getting turned around and going in the wrong direction. When you’re running as fast as you can for the fastest possible time, something like that can be sort of frustrating. But I found my way and finished.

On Monday, I’m going to run a 5k in Texas. The weather should be much better and I’m hoping for a better time. I’ll have some pictures from the run in the near future.

981.5 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day5.
