JFK 50 Miler

July 31st, 2010 - Training - Buzzards Bay - 6.2

Day 211 - No. I did not do my run IN the Bay, but 147 swimmers did do a 1 mile swim across the Bay! I was there to time the 17th annual swim for New England Timing. Great event, but this is one race I won't be doing any time soon.

I went for a quick 5K after timing the swim race, but got caught on the New Bedford side of the Bay when the bridge went up for ship traffic (think train crossing, but even longer and more tedious!). I had to do a couple of extra loops around the Bay (near the New Bedford half course) to kill the time (about 15 minutes!), and ended up running a 10K for the day.

It's been awhile since I've received GLRR photos for the GLRR baseball card collection, but EJ came to the rescue and submitted these for printing.

Without further ado, I now give you the ladies (some more of them) of GLRR:
