She’s Going the Distance

The Women’s Distance Festival always proves to be great race, and great time.  I got to the park a little before 0730, so I could register, and register the kids for the fun run.  After passing off camera duty to Jason, I went for a warm up run.  I talked to Alyson S. before the race, and she said there were over 500 people registered.  Wow!  I started towards the front, some where behind the fast high school kids.  The best part of the race is the firs mile is basically downhill and flat.  I looked back at my previous times, and my fastest was a 14:05.  I just wanted to do better than that.  I kept my sights on Katie M. the whole race.  Not to beat her, but I knew If I stayed close to her, I would have a good time. 

I finished in 16thoverall, with a 13:27:24.   I  was so happy with my time!  I won my age group and got an awesome braceletfor a trophy!  The kids ran the fun run, and got medals.  Brady tripped on the way down, but he got up and finished with a few tears in his eyes.  The cupcakes from Cafe Moxo quickly fixed the boo boo.  Thanks to all the volunteers, and supporters for another great race.
