Peaks Island 5 Miler
Monday, July 28, 2014
It wasn't pretty and no PR for sure.
What a beautiful race though. Gorgeous day on Saturday and we brought our bikes with us on the ferry.
Ferry ride from Portland to Peaks complete with seal sightings!
We got our bibs - 4 of us running and my son as spectator. and our shirts and were ready to race @ 10:30 ...Hot and hilly !!!!1 Fabulous views of the rocky coastline in Maine. - complete with lighthouses (of course IT'S Maine!)........The scent of the wild roses and the clean ocean air ...fabulous!
The best part - MY injury did not hurt and I did not walk once! Of course I was Adviled and taped and iced before the race.. but I was SOOOO sick of having signed up for races and not running them!
Even though my time was NOT even close to anything I would be pleased with I managed to get 3rd in my age group. but the real prize is I am back running; the times will get better with proper training!
