Guess I wouldn't have needed to pose with my Princess HM medal after all. Sarah found another picture of me to include, see lower right:
I finished number 27 in my age group out of 283 runners. Out of the 19,800 finishers I came in about number 3,600. I know, though, that many took their time and stopped for pictures and more entertainment than I did.
I still have a head cold and it may be aggravated with allergy. We have so many (some quite beautiful) things in bloom. There certainly is a lot of pollen around. I slept well last night, glad I could run yesterday, and don't feel as tired today.
So for now we are focused on Senior Games, and as usual, taking care of grandkids. I am so proud of hubby earning second place in checkers. Other than playing occasionally at Cracker Barrel, I don't think he's played in 30 years. He tried to practice on the computer, but couldn't find a checkers program he liked. Hope he does well at chess. Chess he has played and has practiced quite a bit. He's doing Sudoku, too. I'd be doing that one, but I do have kids that day. We are both doing the Bag (corn bags) Toss. He made us a set of boards to practice. It's fun, but I am very inconsistent. I'll sink one and then miss the board entirely!!
I kind of feel like I'm cheating and should confess. I changed my ticker weight from 126 to 132. Last year was my year to try to achieve 126. I got there several times, but have trouble maintaining there. It is my favorite weight, but it seems like 132 is much easier for me to maintain. This is my year to make peace with the scale. I've weighed exactly 131.4 the last 4 days in a row. There may be a time I want that middle 2 back, but for now that is good enough!!
