Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, June 17, 2006. Temp: 78 deg F. In the best Jon Walk tradition, as soon as I arrived in Madison, WI, I searched for a run and found one. Sun Prairie, Wisconsin is a suburb of Madison, a town so well described by our very own Jamoosh. Lesson's learnt from this 10K.
1. Do not eat bratwurst & steaks with 4 bottles of Spotted Cow Ale the night before the race.
2. Do not forget hydration even if you are eating all kinds of anti running food.
3. Do not run on multiple 4 hour sleep nights.
Sun Prairie epitomizes small town midwestern Americana. There were about 150 runners between the 10K, 5K and 1 mile runs. The race coincided with the town's strawberry festival. The run wound around the entire town which incidentally was filled with rolling hills. Freaking hills.
6.2 Miles: 59:09
Shoes: GT-2110 (98 miles)
This goes down as my slowest 10K race time. But it was a lot of fun.
