I ran the Faster with FitNiche 5K in 28 minutes and 32 seconds, I think. It might have been 33 or 34 seconds. It will be posted online tomorrow, so I'll know for sure. This time the finish line pictures are for sale; in my past races they were free. I'll probably buy one, depending on how good it is and how much it is. If I get it, I'll post it.
My niece ran, too, and for only training 4 weeks she did very good. She promised to keep working on it and to pass me eventually. And that will be fine. My sister was there and she took some pictures, so we'll see how they turn out.
I placed third in my age group and got a medal. The first place winner (see my blog, My Hero) was our local phenom, no surprise. She ran it in 23:04. The second place winner and I were elbow to elbow much of the race. She had more kick at the end than I did. But I definitely cannot be disappointed with a personal best.
