5084 is the finish and it's really the only decent picture of me - the others look like I'm walking though it's just the point in my stride they caught or the angle - the pics were nowhere near either of my 2 walk breaks... 3157, 3159, 3160, 3161.

I'm happy these pix are available because my daughter got to see me running even though she & my hubby didn't go to the race because of the weather (hubby is not an outdoor person, so if the weather isn't gorgeous, I don't even ask LOL!). She says she wants to do a 5K with me "next day" - I'm definitely doing another, but 6 is maybe a little young to join me (though I did see that a handful of under-10s finished...). Still, maybe I'll start doing a few little runs with her & see where that leads... she got on the treadmill for 10 minutes today & was much more focused than she has been before - less switching speed & incline & more actual exercising =)

hehe, Careful Gwen, you will end up with too many nicknames- Gumby Gwen, Gingerbread Gwen. What's next?

It might be fun to see how many you can collect! LOL

Ha! Here are my results: 246 358 Julie D. F 33 21/130 F3039 1:51:06 1:51:17 8:26 I was 21st in my division, which jumped to 17th once you accounted for 4/5 overall top women being from my division.

I could not be more pleased with that time. I was aiming for under 2 hours and was pretty sure I could finish in less. Great job today everyone!!

I don't know my chip time yet but my gun time was 34:50 - I was hoping for under 40 and I got under 35 YEAH! I didn't actually see anyone, but sounds like people had fun & raced well...

I was happy with the weather for the 5K - nice cooling mist but not too much downpour - felt kind of bad for the HM people though since it started pouring partway through.

I got to see the winner with the pace car & motorcycles about 1/2 mile from the finish - I forgot my headphones and had a headache so I walked down to the CVS to take care of those issues just as he was running down Court St. That was pretty cool to see someone tearing it up after almost 13 miles! He was booking faster than I've ever run.

Yep red SP shirt...I see my time still hasn't changed...40 mins.: that's what all my practice 5K's have been. I thought I poured it on a little more today, but that's me...one speed! And I'm perfectly okay with that.

Whole lotta GREAT Sparkin' going down today everybody!!

It was GREAT meeting you all! I had a lot of fun! BTW, Gwen, it was Tonnia lol. I guess I need to put my real name down a little more often.

I had Gwen's ponytail in sight for about a half mile and then... poof , she was gone!

I still have not found my time, and I was too distracted coming across the finish line to look at it then. Oh well, the most important thing for today is that I met my goal of NOT WALKING any of it. Woo Hoo!! I may be hooked!

Great Job All!!
