I hate running, but I let my husband talk me into doing the Bridge Run in Charleston. No, I didn’t train. I ate a donut and drank a huge cup of coffee prior to the race, so it’s fair to say that I am not one of those crazy serious runners who have all the cutting edge gear.

I will say that the scenery of the Bridge Run is quite gorgeous. It almost makes it worth doing.
