BOP or MOP?
I just got my results for the Women's Distance Festival 5K that I did last weekend and I finished in 133rd position out of 259 women. Two more spots up and I would have finished in the top half! Jeez, if I had known that I might have run just that little bit harder! :-) Well, it's nice to have a solid middle-of-the-pack finish instead of always being the one holding the Lanterne Rouge, bringing up the rear. Yeah, if they had let the men in I would have been considerably further back in the placements, but anyway.... I'm not so interested in my placement, actually, as I am using it as an indicator of how well I did on a hot day on a hilly course. Knowing that my relative performance times are improving means that my fitness is improving too. Yay!
