Why do they have 8K's in Uruguay? That is a good question. Everything is a little different here, but they do have 5K's and 10K's too! I guess that was all they could get out of the horserace track and the area around it for the big event. There were 3,000 crazy runners in the rain and cold wind. It is fall here and in the 50's.
We ran against the elements through mud, sand, grass, and the woods. There were photographers and TV camera men everywhere. It was televised on the local TV station and displayed on large screens and TV's everywhere. We ran at a casino with an outdoor race track. We ran past the horses warming up for their race after ours. It was a challenge, but I also enjoyed it...once I finished in my record time just under one hour!!! Photos on my Spark Page! Thanks Spark Friends for your support and the Spark 5K Challenge that got me started. Next on my agenda is to run a 10K the Jeff Galloway way!!!
