Just ran my annual 15K. The Jax River Run is the biggest one in the country. 20,000 people. The start looks like folks running from a natural disaster...lol
Missed my time by 4 minutes. 9.3 miles in 1 hour 33 minutes and change.
Hardest mile is the last one. Over the tallest bridge in the town. Lotsa fun though. They had bands playing every mile and neighborhoods cheering us on. People hand stuff out; orange slices, ice pops, but the funniest are the guys cooking brats and handing them out with beer...lol
I'm blessed with 50/50 hindsight.
