Seattle Half: The Light at the End of the Tunnel

The light at the end of the tunnel
Today I ran the Seattle Rock and Roll Half Marathon. It’s my second 13.1 mile race in Seattle — my first and the last time was 3.5 years ago. It snowed or rained the entire route that time. I’m happy to report the streets were dry today. The cloud cover kept us from getting too hot.

I can’t remember how far into the race we were, maybe 10 miles or so when I took this? It’s the only time I stopped to do so, unlike some other races. I seem to hit my cruising altitude and just kept going except for water stations.

If this were a video, you’d hear a bunch of adults acting like they just discovered echos for the first time, right there in the I-90 tunnel under Lake Washington.
