More Watermelon

Sunday, June 08, 2014

Yesterday's Watermelon 5K results are posted. There were 1038 finishers and I was number 405. My chip time was 29:15, not my best, but not bad. The official results confirmed what I said yesterday, that I am currently in second place in my age group. The person in first place beat me by a minute and 4 seconds and the third place person was about a minute and a half behind me. There are seven women in our 65-69 age group; there were 13 men and I beat 7 of them. There are 11 people 70 and up competing. There are 3 more races. The awards and t-shirts will be given out on August 23rd!!

There will be pictures posted and probably there will be a picture of me at the finish line. However, the club is having problems with the web site and says a volunteer is working on it, so we won't hold our breath.

    I don't care where I finish as long as there is no hope of finishing anywhere near the top. But if I were in contention, then I would care (within reason). Just sayin.... You are doing great!

    You are one of the people I admire...concerned about where they finish. After 12 half marathons all I ever want to do -- is finish! Every completion is a success!

    Did I say yesterday I'm jealous of your times? If I didn't, I'm saying it now. If I did, I'm repeating it. emoticon emoticon emoticon
