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!

No BOP about it - that's a solid MOP position! Congratulations on your run!

Great job and keep up the good work!

When is the marathon?

Heather said...

Nice job!

Great race! I would think rank wouldn't matter so much as time. Couldn't one race have a lot of fast people and another race be full of much slower people?

Sure, it was probably a race that attracted some slower folks, but it was a fairly slow course too (hot and hilly). It's just one indicator....

Nancy, I just happened onto your blog. Congratulations on all your hard work. Keep it up. I am a runner in MD. I also did the Col Triathlon as an individual in the past and as a relay this year. Good luck on your future races, maybe I'll see you at Baltimore Running Fest.

Well you can run a 5K. I would like to be able to run a 1A.

Definitely MOP. It's always cool when you don't have to imagine all those slower folks behind you. They got off the couch and came... and you still beat them!
