Saint Michaels Sports Boosters 5k

Teensy tiny local race that goes past my house. No mile markers, forgot my Garmin, no one to pace off of. Coughing and side stitch after being ill for 3 weeks.

BUT this "plodder" didn't walk!! That's a victory for today!

30:14 at the line.

I have the winter to take off 2:15 to get a new PR.

1:09 slower than this course last year, but it was warmer and more humid today. Hmm, but then again I was bouncing back from being sick then too! Oh well, this seems to be a habit. I still won my AG (50 to death; out of maybe 3 women in the AG who didn't walk it) and got a $20 gift certificate to the local Christmas Store!

Then I had to go rescue my training buddy Dave who got a flat on his bike and didn't have the stuff to fix it after flatting a spare tube.... and I also smashed my ankle in the garage entry door, bleeding on my socks. Silliness.

Good for you! (On the race result. Not the Garage Door Incident.)

Well done on the 5K and the flat assistance!
Hope the ankle isn't much trouble.

How nice to have a race that goes right by your house. Congrats on your AG win. Hope you're 100% by B2B!!
