·a year ago

The run was nice enough, not the most exciting route and more uneven surfaces than I would have chosen which not sit well with my type of running shoe. It was a hot day and although weather is hard to judge, the one water station wasn't really enough, popping some water in a car and taking it to the half way point on the day would have been a nice idea. Wouldn't be my first choice to run again sadly.
