Thanks Kimmie and Carolyn! Kimmie, I think your time was great, especially with the weather factors. I'm such a fair-weather runner :)

I am SO SORE today! There were several hills in the 10K yesterday, which didn't seem that big, but when you keep going up and down over and over you feel it later.

Kimmie, that's great! All my runs with even tiny elevation gains are so much slower than on the flat, so that plus Nor'easter means that's an awesome time!

I had a cool, sunny morning with a perfectly flat course. Now I know to look for more like this one ;-) .

Congrats Carolyn, that is awesome!

My race went okay, well, not really lol. We had a Nor 'Easter blow through and it was just getting started at the time of the race. Rain, and them some wind, and gthe flat course was actually quite hilly. I was hoping to finish in 32 minutes but my time was 33:18. Not devastated, though, the Half is the one I am worried about, these are just speed drills! My first 2 miles were 10:30 miles, but my last was a 12, that was when the wind kicked in :)

Yay!! Finished my 10K with my best time yet - 1:09:51! My goal was to finish under 1:10, so I did that and was thrilled. A couple of my running friend did this one, too, although we're all different paces so we didn't run together. But we all beat our goal times, so all in all it was a great day.

Thanks for cheering us on, Judi.

We had a beautiful sunny morning for our race. I was really excited to do 5K in 31.30.

5k done! Everyone who wanted to be was chipped today. Loved that as I had registered as a walker and figured I wouldn't get an official time. It was a bit cool for me, 45*. It was fun and my Mom and my youngest were my cheerleaders. My official time was 40:25, I am happy with that!

My first race of the year (and the first since I started back) is Saturday. It is a 5K and I registered as a walker. But, next month, I am registered as a runner!
