Rotue 66 5k and Monster Dash
Sunday, November 18, 2012
I have a 5k in the books this morning. I ran it in 28:19 and it was a lot of fun. I just went out to run and have fun and not worry about times. At the end of the race, I was getting ready to go back to my hotel and begin my day of exploring Tulsa and its Route 66 environs when the kids started to come in from the FunRun.
Then they started the Mascot run. What a hoot! After that they had dancing in the street.
If the marathon post party is this much fun tomorrow, I may never leave.
I did get to the YMCA to strength train for 45 minutes or so then I struck out west on the Route 66. Pictures of that later.
This sculpture is on Route 66 near a foot bridge. The monument cost Tulsa $2M. I think that's a good price. The figures represent the meeting of Tulsa west of the Arkansas River with the horse. It's the oil drillers and the remains of the Old West meeting up with the business man from East Tulsa representing the new ways.
I liked it.
Tomorrow: 13.1 Miles!
