Early Morning Run in Perfect Weather at Shun The Sun Race
On November 12th about 1,000 runners gathered at the Hohokam Stadium, the spring training facility for the Chicago Cubs, to participate in the third annual Shun the Sun 5K, 10K, and half marathon. The purpose for the race is to raise awareness of the importance of skin cancer prevention. My purpose for attending the race was to be the cheer leader for my wife Chris who ran the half-marathon (13.1 miles). The weather was perfect, overcast and 55 degrees at the 7:00 a.m. start time.
