I did it.
And, amazingly, I managed to finish 3rd in my age group.
It was a little chilly starting out- probably around 35 degrees, but I warmed up nicely. Then, around mile 2 it started to rain. And, after the turnaround, we were running into the wind. NOT pleasant. I managed a 28:38 finishing time. Not bad considering how little I've been running lately.
I do have pictures, but I'm not posting them here! We look like drowned rats in the pictures- the rain was pretty brutal.
It was nice to get out, nice to be at a race.
And, Barbie and I had a fabulous lunch after the run. It was a good day.
