I forgot to include my finish stats in my last post. Since I don't keep a running journal, this is where I keep track of how I progress. There were only 95 runners total, this is a fairly new race for our area.
9/14 Age Group (my friend Leslie was 7/14 and Stormi was 8/14, within a few seconds of each other)
I'm actually looking forward to next year's races, where I will be at the bottom of the next age group and I won't have to compete with those 40 year old youngsters.
I have heard a lot of runners mention that it's common for long distance runners to lose their toe nails. Well, I have a feeling I am about to enter that distinquished group. I have one toenail on each foot that is turning black. I am expecting to take off my shoe after each of my runs and be missing my nail. I'm kinda disappointed because I was trying to be extra careful and keep my nails trimmed so this wouldn't happen. I guess there will be no open toed heels for me this holiday season.

Laughing... with my running buddies; they make training so much fun.
Loving... feeling the pride of accomplishment when I look at my race results.
