The last race of the series was a 5k this past Saturday. I did not come prepared for running through a field of packed slippery snow. I was wearing my road shoes, so I was slipping around, it definitely slowed me down…. but thankfully everyone seemed to have the same problem – so no one passed me in the section…ha. The field took up most of the first mile, and most of the 3rd mile…. but I was able to take off the 2nd mile once on the road.
My time was 22:15 (7:11 min/miles)
50th overall out of 233
6th female out of 84
2nd in my age group
The overall series results – best 3 races out of 5 (one was cancelled).
I was 5th female overall out of 92
I won 1st in my age group
My next race will be next month – on my B-day! The NY 13.1 Half-Marathon, first part of the NY/NJ Challenge. And what is it about the month of May and a million races? I literally have…. a marathon, a 5k, a trail race, a 3.5 mile race, and another marathon….should be interesting.
