I set my alarm for 2:50am, picked up Seth at 3:15 and we drove to Tampa for the Gasparilla distance classic. Seth and two other friends were running the marathon. I signed up for the half, which started and ran alongside the marathoners for about 8 miles. It was ultimately my slowest half marathon at 2:32, and I’m sure it had nothing to do with the screwdriver I consumed at mile 5 thanks to merrymakers with an unofficial aid station along the route.
