        Aww, Tomas, sorry you didn't get to experience any gators on the trail like I did when I ran in that park.  I bet you were all broken up about it too, weren't you? Joking

         

        Congrats on a great half for you!

          the free was the best part. I know a lot goes into races, but some races are just way too expensive. Had it not been free, I wouldnt have run it.

                So glad all the Fat Tire didn't give you a flat tire!  LOL  Your pre-race meal would surely have made you some good eatin' for 'gators, so it's a good thing you were speedy.

                 

                Congrats!

                        Thanks. The carbs were not too bad, but too much BBQ late at night and minimal sleep wasnt good.

                                I just wish races didn't cost so much that it would be cool if there were trails near me.
