i was hesitant about running this race because i have been so tired and felt sluggish this past week during my workouts.. but i'm glad i did!!!!!<br><br>
let me preface this with saying that this is an extremely small local race with no more than 400 runners. there is not much to say about the race since it was so darn short.. i forgot to bring my watch so i figured i'd just run all out and call it a day. 400 yards from the finish line, i noticed that my shoelace came undone.. so i spent the last 400 yards trying to focus on not tripping and falling on my face <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"> i didn't even notice my time.<br><br>
after the race, i was trying to warm up in this pavilion where they had snacks and had begun the awards ceremony. since its such a small race, they medaled only the top male/female for each AG. as i was minding my own business and packing up my stuff to go, i heard my name announced. i was floored. <i>i won my age group, F25-29</i>. apparently my time was 24:10.. and by not tripping or stopping to tie my shoelace, i managed to hold off the second place chick by 4 secs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Cool"><br><br>
never in a million years would i have thought i could win my AG (albeit a very small, local race). tommorow is my 28th bday.. so this is my birthday present to myself. its been a tremendous year of running for me.. and i am so blessed to be healthy, happy, and in love <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy">
