I'm still having running soreness and pains (including a new pain in my ankle) so I decided not to run the Melon Run on this humid 4th of July morning. This 3-mile race is apparently a Gainesville tradition. The Melon Run is sponsored by the Florida Track Club.

While spectating the race, I took a bunch of photos which I am sharing on Flickr:


Hope my running friends enjoy the pictures!

I did get a little running in today, moving around the course to try to catch the runners at various points. I used this chance to test running with my new Deuter backpack. I enjoyed wearing my Vibram FiveFingers (I seem to be drawn to wearing these when it is dank and soggy outside). I saw at least three race participants wearing VFF.
