I ran a beautiful, dry half marathon Saturday afternoon and earned my 18th medal. My time was totally average, and my (new) phone survived because it did not rain.
Each year the Chickamauga Battlefield race medal represents an infantry from a different state, and I’m loving that this year the chosen state was Wisconsin.
The course was comfortable and well-paced. The uphills were slight and balanced by sloping downhills. The 360-degree views were a bonus.
You can’t tell from the photo above, which was taken with my phone, but the fall foliage finally showed up in the southeast. TOOK LONG ENOUGH. All of October went by and nothing happened. It was too warm, it was too dry.
But then November arrived and BOOM.
And then, Grandma showed up! I love surprise visits.
