I kind of went against my own advice and had tacos the night before the race. They were fish tacos, so I figured they'd be less spicy and tummy-upsetting, but I was wrong. I wasn't really sick, but my stomach is a lot easier to deal with on race days if I have a nice salad the night before.

Musicians from the Philharmonic, including students, were set up in the median along the course (which is exactly the same as I've been running weekly on Tuesdays). It was fun to hear the music as we ran by.

|The Philharmonic has some cool statues on the grounds...|

|I hate the protein-powder taste of these shakes usually, but this one was very tasty!|
PS: Matt is really happy because he destroyed his last 10k time by 2 minutes, finishing in 55:38.
|Consecutive numbers, ftw.|
