Woo hoo another race, another medal!!!!

Woo hoo another race, another medal!!!!

Did a 5 k with my friend today and improved my time a bit and was surprised when they called me for the 1st place award in my age group!!! I was wondering if maybe I was the ONLY woman in the 60-64 age group- haha. But actually there were four and my time of 35:26 was the best! My husband ran the10 k (he hasn't even been running regularly) and did it in less than 60 minutes!

Hope to improve on my time- gotta keep working on it I guess!

  • That's brilliant! My second parkrun yesterday and I took 36:47 minutes but I was first in my age group - same as yours. At least I was nearly a minute faster than the week before. :)

  • Congratulations to you! So you know how I feel. It can be an advantage to grouped with the "older folks". Hehe. This course has a couple of mild inclines, nothing big, but when they are bigger or longer, I have a tough time and up my time goes!

  • Fantastic! You look great too! Keep getting those medals! x

  • Well thanks Carole- I am having fun with these new goals!
