Parade run fun!

Parade run 2008 76 The parade run was everything I expected it to be. I was worried about parking, so I got there around 1630.   I registered and got my chip.  I was so glad Allison was an early bird too. 

I wanted to do 2- 6:30miles.  I started running and looked at my garmin “6:00 min/miles”  too fast.  You get caught up in the run.  I settled into a nice 6:30 pace, trailing jack until the turn around.  I slowed down a bit on the last mile.  I was running a 6:49 when I looked. 

 I ended up finishing with a 13:25.  I wanted to finish under 13:30, so I was happy.  This was by far my fastest time.  I think I ran a 13:50 the last time I ran this race.  I won 1st in my age group! 

After the race I enjoyed a few import beers.  Just what I needed.  Congrats to all the winners, especially to Allison! You go girl!
