Don't think of it as this time, think of it as lifetime.

Funny thing was, I knew there was going to be "a hill or two". I didn't think it was going to be as brutal. I most certainly didn't think I was going to place at my pace. By mile two I almost said and did, "Why don't you take a walk? The finisher medal will be the same when you cross the finish line." Had I succumbed to that line of thinking the guy behind me would have caught up and either pass me or I would be battling neck and neck. It was during the final mile I said to myself, "Hmmm with the exception of one, I don't notice anyone in the male gender and close to my age so I might as well keep going."

When they posted the results and I saw my AG being 3rd I was like, "No way! Is this right?"

Anyway the lesson is to don't quit because you just never know how well you would place.

I would have been as content with a finisher medal as they were very nice as well.

No bad news, all good news! Bad news would've been that you didn't run *because* of the hills! Better news is now you can challenge yourself on hills!!

Congrats! Woohoo!!

Great job! I did the Resolution Run here in Atlanta. My time was 35:06. This was the least prepared I had been for a run but I decided to not let it stop me. I needed to start the New Year by jumping right back into a healthy lifestyle.

Bad news is due to the hills I had to endure, my official time was slower then I liked of 34:41. Great news is because I didn't give into my inner voice that was complaining about the hills and kept running, I came out with 3rd place for my age group.
