5 k -  2nd place in my age group!! :)

I just posted something I thought I had already put on here from when I was on vacation in April in the Carribean . When we got home I got a respiratory infection for two weeks so didn't run for over 3 weeks. I am still trying to get my stamina built back up.

Yesterday we ran a 5k for prostate cancer and I got 2nd place for my age group(60-64)! Now don't start cheering too loudly- there were only 5 people in that group and my time was 36:59. I am motivated to get faster!! Later this week I am running in a

Chase Corporate Challenge where there will be 10900 runners and walkers with about 500 local businesses represented. It is 3.5 miles and will be fun, but I guess it won't be a time to better my pace!
