Courtney and I just finished the Trot for Hunger this morning. It was a beautiful, but cold, morning. I was reminded of the road races I ran with Clint O'Neal back when we were in junior high and high school, driving to Hot Springs for the Mountain Valley Spring Water 10 K or Hope for the Watermelon days fun run. This run seemed easier than those, maybe because I didn't worry so much about competition. Courtney finished in 30 minutes 35 seconds, and I finished in 26 minutes 45 seconds. We ran the first half of the run together, then split up. Then we walked along the mall to the Smithsonian metro station. What a great start to Thanksgiving! I hope everyone is enjoying being with their families right now.
