>> Saturday, March 31, 2012 – Running
Last Sunday I ran another race- a 10 mile one.
The race was in Frederick and in support of the Frederick Rescue Mission. It was their first year doing the race and I think it was really well put together..
The only thing that was the suck was the timing chip- it was an ankle bracelet. Every chip I've had before was either in my bib or a little thing on my shoe/shoe laces. The ankle bracelet sucked.. it tore up my ankle and I finished with blood all over.
The weather ended up being perfect- it was supposed to be rainy/thunderstorm all day, but it didn't rain a drop and the sun came out. Temperatures were in the mid-60's to low 70's. It was just awesome overall. Except I ran in a hat- ugh. I wanted to be prepared if it did rain, but oh well.
It was a rough run.. I've been really slacking on running recently- just a combination of not wanting to go out in the cold, John traveling, etc. I did it though and finished. I will never win a race and just knowing that I can finish (even if I am stinkin slow) is enough for me. I love the running community (everyone is so supportive!) and the rush at the end of a race that I DID IT!

Bonus of this race? Got my first medal!!
Of course afterward we went out and got a celebratory ice cream- first Jimmie Cone of the year!
