4 on the Fourth Bridgeton Maine

Thursday, July 04, 2013

nice local race - it is in the heart of "The Lakes Region" so tons of people and 36 states represented and several countries as well.

Lots of "campers" as well. The camps in the area and there are a gazillion of them send some of their campers and counselors to race..... as you can imagine a real cluster at the beginning.

Did I say hot? Yowza

Not my fastest 4 miler but I guess good enough to get first place in my age group!
Hope you all are having a great 4th - swimming- kayaking and having fun are rounding out my day.

    I like that kind of atmosphere - campers, families, people from all over... as long as you can stay out of the traffic snarl by getting there early and staying late, it's a sure way to see interesting things and meet people with great stories to tell!

    I did my 10k in 76ºF weather. That is hot for any running, but coupled with +90% humidity ... I was soaked, dripping from the brim of my hat to the bottom of my shorts.
