29th Cooper River Bridge 10K

My daughter decided to participate in the Cooper River Bridge Run yesterday with Papa Bear. Okay, well, they walked it. It was really hard for both of them to get up so early....



USA Track and Field altered the course this year because Charleston built a new bridge and a huge turnout was expected for the historic first run over it. In the past walkers only had to leg a 7K course, but this year they were forced to walk the entire course. This came as a big surprise to past walkers who couldn't figure out why the walk seemed so long. Interesting that with 45497 entrants, only 33742 crossed the finish line. It appears that no one was really forced to walk the entire course.



Hooray...the half way point! Luckily, the course literally went down hill after that.

Hey Lisa, I wanted to let you know I think you may have a problem with your feed. Strange posts show up occasionally in my reader. Have you recently switched to the new blogger?
