I almost NEVER run without music!
This was going to be a true test – 13.1 miles, in the rain, with no music! But running without my headphones also means that I won’t have my running app updating me with my current pace etc after each mile! EEEK!
Before I knew it I was passing mile 4! Even though I didn’t knowing overalls needed it or not, I was going to keep with the a fueling plan similar to what I did last week. I can say that I was truly enjoying this race, the cool temperatures and the serenity of the beautiful trail I was running on. Every once in a while, the trail was close enough to houses or other roads that you could hear a random car or other voices, but for the most part it was just me, a few hundred other runners and the sounds of nature. At one point a train past within feet of the train that we were running on! Definitely not something on most race courses I run!
Before I knew it, we were coming into Marquette! I was still feeling strong and had met some great people to run with over the last 8 miles! Now time for the last 5 miles! It was really nice to run some of these streets in Marquette after living here back in the early 90’s. Granted I was not a runner back then but this was my home for 2 years and just being able to travel these streets again by foot, brought back some great memories!
And it was awesome!!
