Running At Stonehenge

Sorry for the delay in writing the blog after our race, but we just arrived back into the United States after a few days in London with our nephews, Darius and Braedon, who came on the trip to England with us. We had a great time sharing the major sights of London with them like The Tower of London, The London Eye, and Buckingham Palace. Here is a photo (Darius, me, Braedon) after the race at Stonehenge:

We all flew into England on the June 23rd after flying through the night on the 22nd from Atlanta. We rented a car from Heathrow and made the trip to the southwest of London. Our hotel was too far away the first night (and the driving through the small towns of England were a real challenge with the many roundabouts and tight roads), so we took a hotel closer to Stonehenge the next day.

Stonehenge is a archaeological marvel that is 5,000 years old. We checked out this Medieval Wonder of the World on Friday and wheeled out the selected course nearby. We woke up at 4am on Saturday to begin the race at 5:45am. It was raining and made the course a bit slippery, but I ran a solid race posting a time of 4 minutes, 43 seconds, and 11 hundredths.

Braedon who is not only talented, but also creative put together the Stonehenge video. You can hear Braedon and Darius’ teenage voices yelling during the race. Check out the short video below about race #2 at Stonehenge:

 

 

I will be at the Peachtree Road Race Expo on July 2nd and July 3rd on behalf of my sponsor Sigvaris. Please come by the Sigvaris booth this weekend if you are in Atlanta and try on a pair graduated compression socks!
