Last week I ran the Wharf to Wharf. Just like last year, it was a cool and foggy morning (perfect for running). This was my second time participating in this classic race. The past few months I have been dealing with a horrible case of shin splints. Regardless of what I try, how I stretch, how often I ice, the quality of my shoes, inserts, etc. these shin splints continue to haunt me. I didn't run for about five weeks in order to rest my shins and still have a chance at running some of the race. Markus decided, last minute, that he didn't want to run it, so he and the kids met me at the finish line.
...and here is my attempt at taking a picture with my cell phone as I crossed the finish line.
