Cornhusker State Games
Would you believe I ran a 5K on a day that topped out in the mid-90's F? OK, on the evening following that day... race started at 7:30 p.m. It was part of the Cornhusker State Games, games in the tradition of the amateur.
The surprising thing (to me) is that I came away with a gold medal for my age / gender division. WooHoo... I have NEVER done anything like that before. I used to be the kid that was picked last for any given team sport back in school.
Anyway, you can see my surprise and pleasure in this shot, that my son snapped last night, after the race was over & we'd had our hot dogs (it was a hot dog chase... pity the poor lead runner in the hot dog costume... he got passed by several of the leaders who became the top finishers).
Only goes to show, you can get fit AND have fun while you're at it.
