Fast forward to spring and a whole bunch of Island Girls Running members signed up too! This was going to be awesome!! So Friday after work I stopped by Mama Lombardi's and grabbed dinner and headed out to George and Fran's. We just ate, hung out and watched TV. I went to bed around 10. Saturday morning I got up around 6 and got ready.
The weather was not promising with it calling for rain all morning and then some thunderstorms. I hit some traffic but still got out to the race with plenty of time to get my stuff and hang out with everyone for a while. Plenty of portopotties with hardly any lines. We also posed for a bunch of photos.

The first couple of miles were pretty boring for me. I thought running in Bridgehampton would be special and pretty. I guess since I spent a lot of time out here when I was in my teens it wasn't anything exciting. It was super humid and very grey which didn't help. We got sprinkled on once or twice but that was it. There were next to no spectators out at all either. Pretty much right away the traffic control was letting cars pass the road blocks. At first it wasn't too bad. The cars went slow and on just one side of the street. It got a bit crazy around miles 4-5 though.

**After the race I posted this picture on the Facebook page of the race and I got the following reply:
|I bought this picture so it isn't stealing LOL|
|This is Jess! I can not wait to see her at another race!!|
