Racing Day

The “Coal Creek Blaze” 8k race was this Thursday. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The rain threatened to make things interesting, but it held off until after the race. I love racing–hate training, but love the race. I came in a little faster than my goal time and I was able to take 1st in my age group, and 4th overall, which was exciting. There was a fun little kids race after and Halle ran the whole way!

Me and my running buddy Allison. I love running with her because she pushes me to go a little faster than I would do on my own. Our friend Joanna also ran the race–I don’ know where she was at picture time!
Halle and her friends Autumn, Taylor, Jude, and Levi at the starting line.

  1. Good Job. I agree race is the best. It makes all the training worth it. That is also great that Halle raced, too. I tried putting Rusty theblogfrog on my blog, but it didn’t post. I’ll have to try again. Loves

  2. You’re amazing!!! I don’t know that I would ever be able to run a race because I hate running and am so out of shape. So good for you!!! I am sad I missed you when you were out here. Hopefully next time I will get to hang out.

  3. 4th Place – you go girl! You’re so awesome! I especially love the post-race hair-do ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the comment on my blog…maybe I’ll just start charging people to read it; that saves me from putting forth the effort of hunting down a publication ๐Ÿ™‚
