I was at Kennedy Space Center to watch the shuttle launch, which was an amazing experience. A few hours before the launch, I ran 10 miles. 5 of the miles were on deserted roads on the base that had water filled canals on both sides, with alligators all over. It sure made my heart beat faster the whole time to hear strange noises and keep jumping. When you are running 20 feet away from an 8-10 foot long alligator with nothing between you and him, it lets you know you are alive and makes the run anything but just another training run. And, once again, the shuttle launch was awesome.
