W9R3 Done!!

W9R3 Done!!

Did W9R3 at 6:00 am this morning before work. There was only one other person on the trail at that hour. He was out of sight by the time I finished my run but I bet he heard me yell! I did a little over 2 miles in close to 37 minutes. Thanks to everyone here for their positive words and cheering me on these past few weeks! I will continue to try to get my speed up. Here is sweaty pic of the end of my run. You can see the trail over my shoulder. The shirt says Tennessee but I promise I am in Ohio :)
