Day 671- I'm a Competitor?

So I found the results of my race online last night, and I was shocked.

I came in 16th overall!

Usually, I'd point out that only 85 women did the 5k and half of them were walkers, but at this point in my life, I'm done with the negative speak.

If the race was broken up into women in their 20s, 30s, etc, I would have been 6th!

And if it had a normal race breakdown, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29 etc... I would have been 2nd in my age group!

I ran the race with the top 20% of the people who participated.

I'm starting to think I may have a chance at placing at races if I keep training.

This thrill has me ready to sign up for the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving.

Who knew I was an athlete?
