And a good day to run in Rachelle’s Virtual Birthday Race. It was her 38th Birthday recently and she is hosting a 3.8 mile virtual race to celebrate. There are prizes available too although I know I would never win a 'time' prize, perhaps there are some random draws... and some great brands are participating, too.
I plotted a new route because 3.8 miles is just not a usual distance for me. I really had no idea where in my neighborhood it might take me. And when I invited The Captain to come along I didn’t tell him we would be going a bit longer than our usual 5 km today so there was no opportunity to have him talk me out of that.
I wore my Mizuno shoes …. mine are white and look so plain compared to all of the new pink Mizuno Sayonara reviews I am seeing. But I love them anyway.
It was quite breezy out there today and we had into a strong headwind coming off the Strait for at least half of the distance... uphill into a headwind. Fun. I had forgotten how thirsty running into the wind can make you so was really glad I had packed some water along.
And because Rachelle asked for pictures, I took the phone along too, and snapped a couple of shots at one point. These pictures were taken of some BEARS in a yard that faces out to the water. The bear statues were decorated and then sold as part of a fund raiser in our city some time ago… and these folks have 2 of them.

Hope you had a great 38th Birthday celebration, Rachelle…. I enjoyed being part of it with this run in your virtual race.
