What an awesome Sunday!
My team and I each competed in different events today. We had two teammates in each race; 5KM, 10KM, and the Half Marathon. Bobbi and I ran the 10km in 45:34 and 48:53 respectively. We ran together for about one mile and then I backed off a bit because we were running under 7 minutes a mile (YIKES)! The course was fairly flat with one moderate hill and one LONG STRAIGHTAWAY to the finish. I had to do a lot of positive self talk on this part. I can’t remember what I was saying to myself but I know all I focused on was my breath and the chant (something like “fast running…”). Personally, I had a few aches and pains in my knees and some side stitches, so hopefully, I can run faster next month. Teresa, our cheering section, ran the 5km pushing twin boys in 33:34 (eleven minutes faster than last year). This is a serious improvement for her. Dee Ann ran right behind her and finished in 35:34. My half marathon runners ran their first ever half and did great. Katy ran it in 1:49 and Amber in 2:02. We all stacked our categories, in case you were wondering!!
