Don't Pass Me....I'm not in your Age Group

I still laugh when I think of the T-shirt worn by another runner saying, "Don't Pass Me....I'm not in your Age Group!" Hahaha... I passed him...

In fact, I passed more people than I thought I would, finished 3rd in my age group and came home with an award! I feel so slow running with the people at work... I'm almost always the last one back. So... reality check... I'm slow when compared to men and women in their 20's and 30's, but do pretty darn well against the other "more mature" ladies in my age group. I finished in 24:42... not my best time, but an okay time for a rainy Sunday. That's why there are no pictures of this race. No one wanted to get their cameras wet.

As for Chris... he forgot his timing chip, so he has no idea what his finish time was. But, I know he was faster than me.

Next week is Thanksgiving. Time to start thinking "Turkey Trot."
Have a GREAT weekend everyone!

Big congrats Joni!!! That is so awesome, I love the medal with that dinosaur on it. So cute. I'm sure you ran it just to get a cute medal, ha ha!! I will be happy when I can run again, but for the time being i'll have to live vicariously through you and your great awards!!

SInce I haven't been able to run while recovering I've been scrapping :) Actual hands on traditional scrapping (not digi)! It's not running but I still love it!

That is so cool!!!! I keep needing to remind myself of that whole age thing too :P Closing in on 50 is a whole different ballgame than 27!

Killer time! I really want to get a 24 something in my 5K next week :)
