Have you guys ever heard the phrase "Coming in 2nd makes you the #1 loser"? Well that is me! Yesterday Marc and I raced our 2nd 10K. It was very hot and humid. Lots of people were really struggling, including some very buff and young Fort Drum soldiers. Since I run at lunch time, I am kind of used to running in the heat. It was pretty intense, but I was not all that bothered.
At any rate, it was a pretty small race - only 70 racers (you could also bike and there were a lot of bikers). But I was the 6th person to finish and was 2nd overall for women! It was pretty exciting! And pretty hard for me to believe!
Here I am after collecting my medal:
Marc took 1st place in his age group!
The race included a pancake breakfast for all runners afterwards. Do you know how long it has been since I've eaten pancakes??!! Let's just say that I took full advantage and, of course, felt guilty afterwards.
Some day - SOME DAY - I am going to be able to just eat like a normal person!!
