Blairsville 5k

     This race was at 8 am in Indiana County.  That meant getting up at 5 am. UGH!  I was not having a good morning.  I felt ill.  I tried to relax and I thought that I was okay right before that race.  When the race start I took off with the front pack.  At a half mile my right calve cramped up.  I ran through the pain until mile two.  Then I took a short walk break and a dude in bright orange shorts passed me.  I spent the next half mile catching up with him and then falling behind again when my calve would hurt too much.  Managed to finish in 22:16.
     The race was a fun little race in the middle of no where.  Only 57 finishers.  I got 8th place and 3rd in my age group.  Sara got 18th place and 1st in her age group.
     After the race we made several stops.   I was still ill.  Sara was able to get all this fruit for $5.  Some of it was free.

     A quick grill out when we got home.   Then off to bed for me.  I was out cold for four hours.
