Event: Groundhog Run
Location: Kansas City, MO
Not a groundhog day race, but a reference to the race being run in an underground complex. This course was in the tunnels at the Hunt Complex. The appeal of the underground races is getting to run a race in the winter in a climate-controlled environment. The downside is that the air is musty and being underground, your GPS won’t work. You have to run blind.
I had the stomach flu for this race and really didn’t feel like running it. I made myself get up anyway and ran the entire race pretty much convinced I was going to have to stop and throw up. Not a fun feeling. Since my phone didn’t work, I wasn’t able to use my online music library. I ended up having to listen to one of the few songs actually stored on my phone. So far over an hour, I listened to Twisted Transistor by Korn.
