A sign of spring is Crazylegs! The annual run in Madison is one of the UW Athletic Department's main fundraisers. It's an 8K, 5 mile run through downtown and campus, and you end at Camp Randall on the 50 yard line. It's always a lot of fun, and there's always beer at the end :) Bonus: Tim shook Barry Alvarez's hand at the end (and Keaton Nankivil at the beginning of the race).
This definitely wasn't my best race. I ran way too fast at the beginning with Tim and friend Jill, and paid for it around mile 2. Awful side ache that started the shallow breathing, and then I think I was so upset that I started hyper-ventilating. I finally calmed down and worked the side ache out, and was still able to finish in 52 minutes. Good lesson for the half marathon coming up in about a month!
