>Look What I Can Do!>My longest run ever! Cologne Germany Brueckenlauf- Sept 7, 2008
E.J.Greater Lowell Road RunnersCry havoc and let slip the dawgs of war!May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.
First or last...it's the same finish line
I don't think I'd be really crazy about stairs on a course, but other than that it sounds like a really nice day and race.
You didn't mention a mass release of balloons at the start, that must have been a bit of a letdown. It's so easy to become spoiled.
I hate to admit I got a good chuckle out of your encounter with nettles, ouch is right.
You should be very proud of your effort, hope your knees recover well and quickly.
