WHAT A MORNING at St Augustine Half Marathon, 11/10/2019! Too chilly for me (not into that 50degree temp), but I did set a new PR in the 10K! The sunshine was great, and the hot shower afterwards was awesome, too!

Space Walk of Fame 8k, Titusville, 4/6, was a blast! Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11! Met two-time Shuttle Astronaut Bob Springer afterwards! And, there was pre-event beer at Playalinda Brewing (one of the sponsors) the night before! 





Awesome time at 42nd Annual Gate River Run 15k, Jax,3/9/2019!  First time at this event; first time EVER going 15k!
