my first real "race" ever! The Christmas Town Dash
( an 8K ) www.christmastowndash.co
was actually set for last weekend but due to snow and just plain yucky weather they postponed it until this morning.
The good news about the postponement was that my DS20 was home from college and they opened the registration back up because a lot of people couldn't make it back and he was able to join me. He was so sweet to go with me as I can "jog" about a 15 minute mile and he can run a lot faster than that. He supported me all the way.
stopped just as we were arriving at the race this morning and as we finished the
came out. I now have a "benchmark" to go for and out of the age group I was in (50-54) I was 65th of 90, a race time of 1:15:20.86 with an average of 15:09 per mile. I was trying for a finish under 1:20:00 and I did it!!
This was kind of my "culminating" event for BLC23. I will have to keep on working at reducing that time and my weight. Onward sparkers!!
