At least I got to the race early but I didn’t think it would be a good one – it was hot…I bought new ear buds and an armband band for my iPod… both were uncomfortable…I had a stomach ache from Indian food eaten the day before…my shorts were too tight..wah..whah..whah.. (done whining!)
The race started at the same place as the Silks & Satins 5k but went in the opposite direction. I started near the start and was quickly passed by most of the runners. The course was hillier than I expected with no mile markers at all.
I was tired and walked for a while at the water stop – probably the halfway point and had no energy at the end so I couldn’t believe when I crossed the finish line – it said 29:30!! My fastest ever! I think I’ll buy the photo (there was a photographer at the finish line) in case I never run that fast again.
They gave away bag chairs as prizes but the age divisions were by 10 years – no chance for me.
I’m taking a break. My next race is not until Aug 29.
