My FIRST Age Group Award!!

Yes, I took 3rd place in my age group in this morning's Electric Bolt 5K in Ann Arbor!  
It was so exciting!!  It wasn't a PR for me, but it was a great race!

It's a pretty cool medal - and that means a lot from me as I've donated all of my medals so far :)  
The glass was for all age group winners - I just put a blue washcloth in it so you could see the design.

You can't really read the Garmin, but my time was 30:56 which is a 9:59 pace and a 3rd PR for me 
(29:59 is my best and 30:40 is my 2nd and YES, I keep track of these things).  
However, this race felt better than those two!

I'm going back to bed for some much-deserved sleep after the longest/craziest/busiest week of my life, but I'll recap it all later tonight!


  1. Way to go!! That has happened to me several times.. placing when it isn't even a PR for me. Medals always feel so great around your neck! I love the cool lightening bolt.
