Another year, another bunch of people promising to exercise. Right. Whatever. Some of us really do exercise, however. The familiar faces are starting to add up. For instance, I saw Monica again. She seems to be at all the races these days, although her husband John is recovering from knee surgery and can’t participate for a while. (Must be driving him nuts!)
As you can see from the photos below, this was another dog-friendly event. Dog’s and baby strollers are highly dangerous for the larger races like the Cooper River Bridge Run, but these smaller events have plenty of room for them. Lots of folks brought the dogs along for a bit of exercise. Needless to say, there was a lot of petting and ear-scratching going on.
The course was the same as last year, as far as I could tell. We went through the Citadel grounds, past Hampton park and then back to Joe Riley Stadium. I didn’t run much over the holidays, so I was grateful for my semi-respectable time.
