We both placed 3rd in our age/sex division

Sunday, June 16, 2013

My granddaughter came close to her goal time 30:43, she is wanting a sub30. I was not close to my goal but I spent the day before out in the sun for abut 6 hour planting and weeding. So, I was not really expecting a good time. I crossed the finish line at 33:22. This race I usually do not expect to place because of the competitive runners that usually run this one, but for some reason they weren't there. Good for me. emoticon

    I once came in 2nd in a race because there were only 2 people in my age/sex division. That made me the oldest woman in the race. I was so proud.

It still counts!

Good for you and good for your granddaughter!

    I can see the resemblance. Congratulations to both of you! The competitive runners were there. Your blog shows two of them!

Just sit back and think about the great accomplishment this really is. You both have trained and worked hard. Both of you beat everyone that was home sitting on the couch.

You also have a terrific bond with your granddaughter. Thanks for sharing!
