Gate River Run - DNS Report

Last weekend was our areas largest road race the Gate River Run 15k...  Over 17,000 runners toed the line.  I was not one of them...  I was registered but was unable to race.  I did go down to support my friends.

I did walk over and watch the pros finish as well as the first 2000 or so runners....  saw lots of friends and foes.

Sometimes being a sherpa is more fun then racing, then you can watch people racing, and you see some runners, and you wonder "what is their story" because everyone has a story

it's all about pace said...

no kidding BDD... and it's near impossible to look at someone and guess how fsat/slow they are

being a spectathlete is hard work, especially if you didn't have time to train. NICE WORK!
