The race route is boring in some places, interesting in others (SA Zoo, Trinity College campus, The Alamo) and definitely hilly in the middle miles. But it's so close to home and such a fun event, I thought I'd sign up and run it again this year.

total of 19 miles, in preparation for doing my next full marathon in early January.
The month before, I'd signed up to do a "virtual" race, a 5k distance to earn this fun medal! Moon Joggers is an organization that plans and puts on virtual races throughout the year to raise money for a variety of charities. I couldn't resist signing up for this one just so that I could get this cool medal! I submitted results from one of my training runs, which I made sure was exactly the 5k distance - 3.1 miles.
