29:01 5K


Saturday, March 09, 2013

I'm so happy that I ran 29:01 in the 5K Senior Games and got the Gold!!

My cheering squad - Aquagirl and hubby and my niece and nephew were there. I really felt special!!

I also placed in the 5K Walk and the 900 Walk. So, 3 Senior Games events and 3 medals today!!

Then on to the Shamrock Run/Walk and Jog with your Dog where I paced my nephew. I pushed him, but he did it. He took 2 minutes and 2 seconds off his 5K last month (over 4 minutes off his first 5K in January) for 43:33. Believe it or not, but I placed with that time, too.

So, I'm tired. 10.2 racing miles plus warm up walks and jogs. 4 awards though. Will post a couple pictures and more details tomorrow. I am so blessed to be able to do this racing. Today has been a very good day!!

    Wow! I didn't realize that you were doing 2 other Senior Games events too. To walk away with 3 metals is amazing. Then to go on and place in Martin's race just blows me away! No wonder you were tired. You did a fantastic job and really have several big reasons to be proud of yourself (I know I'm proud of you!)

    That is so awesome! At one time I coordinated the local senior games in my area, and went to the state senior games several times. There are some amazing athletes and it makes me so excited what people over 55 can do. I don't know who is coordinating them now, but if I hear something I'm going to sign up this year. But we have a small community so there isn't a lot going on with it. Mostly people qualifying for state games, and sometimes there will be only one person in a gender and age category. I could place for sure. Not near your time though! That is really so wonderful and congratulations on all your medals today! Get some well deserved rest!
