Graduated!

As some of you know today Should have been a combination graduation and first competitive 5k, the race was cancelled earlier because of Hurricane Flo, turned out it missed us so I ran graduation and extended to 5k, pace was 10’39” not bad for a 58 year old that hasn’t run any distance for 36 years! Cheers everyone and those of you just starting, if I can do it you can do it- enjoy! BTW they gave us the T shirt and medal anyway!

Congratulations! You earned the medal and shirt you ran the race anyway! Also congratulations on the PB, very decent pace first time out too. Enjoy your next running journey.

Thanks everyone for the support throughout- couldn’t have done it without you all!

Congrats, you’ve got a permanent reminder of a huge achievement. Hopefully you would be able to enter more 5ks and join other runners as well. Happy running.
