Are you up for a ROARING CHALLENGE ?

There is lots of sports news to report this week. First, my son and I ran in the Summerfest "Rock and Sole" Half-Marathon on Sunday, July 10th. The first 6 miles of this 13.1 miles race were on the Hoan Bridge. It was incredibly hot, humid and almost no breeze. At about 10:30 am the race officials "black-flagged" the race which means they stopped timing it in order to encourage people to walk. The times were, however, posted. My son finished in 1' 28". I finished in 2' 56" which is my slowest time ever in a half. That time reflects a large amount of walking. An unusually large number of runners did not finish. I enjoyed the race although it was potentially dangerous to run in this heat and a number of people were overwhelmed. There were lots of people walking who otherwise would have been running. The race also featured a 10k ( about 6.2 miles).
