On December 7th, Ray and I ran the Savannah Bridge Run. We ran the 5k, although they have 10k and Double Pump (5k then the 10k) options. However, we had never conquered the bridge before, or any hills for that matter living in Savannah, so we opted to just go over it once. According to the race website, the bridge itself is a "5.5% grade and 1.4-mile span" and then of course 1.7 miles after that (which had many smaller hills included!).
Many people dress up in costume, a lot of which are shown below. We didn't dress up, but his mom was Wonder Woman, along with the women from our local Moms Run This Town (also below). And none of these at all are stolen from the professional photographer.....
Like with the Pickle Run a few weeks ago, the race itself was hard, but the community was so amazing. I had so much fun, and we might even do the Double Pump next year. We'll certainly dress up. I don't have all too much to say about this race. We did complete it in 45:15, and my Garmin measured it long at 3.17 I believe, so about the same as the Pickle Run.
We did just join a local running club, and every Sunday morning they run the bridge, so that will be really helpful!

Has it been unreasonably or unusually warm for anyone else lately?
