cooler & running posts: Yesterday, I woke up nice and early to drive out to Utica for the Boilermaker. You run 9.3 miles and then they give you some food and beer. There are bands and radio stations and entertainment all along the course plus thousands of rowdy spectators. Not so bad as far as races go. After I got back home, I laid out in the park for awhile and then ordered celebratory Indian food. That's how I roll.
