My 100 Days of Why - Day 13

Sunday, September 16, 2018

I enjoy winning race bling, that is, age group awards.

I know I've already written that when I manage my weight and eat smart, I run faster. And I wrote that I enjoy running more when I'm fit. Well, today, I am focusing on the race bling I collect. It is fun! Would NOT be able to do that if I was not fit and active.

Last eve after the 4th race of the Aching Quad more than a hundred runners met at Frescos, a local restaurant. The race director, who I first met 20 years ago at Weight Watchers, had a mike and did a great job of leading the award ceremony. I was really tickled to take 2nd place in my age group. I gave up a couple minutes to run the one mile race with Gwen, but so glad I did. The person who won is in my running group and runs full marathons. She would have still beat me if I had run full out on the one mile.

I didn't take any pictures of Gwen running and didn't get any of me either. But other people did and I suspect I'll post some later after they are posted or sent to me.

Wishing you another great day. Hope you receive some concrete confirmation for your fitness efforts!
