About a dozen of us had "excused absences" from this morning's run. We were competing in the 2 miler and 5 miler races at UCF. Well, not exactly. The 5 miler turned out to be short a third of a\mile or more, since Track Shack very uncharacteristically came up with what my Garmin said was only 4.62 miles. That provides a PR for everyone who ran the 5 miler! (Well, sort of) Track Shack promises they will provide stats on the actual distance.
The turnout included the Talbot family running the 2 miler, with one of their sons carrying a shoe that came off towards the end of the race. Good to see you, Viviana and Joe!
We had at least seven of the group do the "discounted" 5 miler. (Geralynn, Dawn & husband Dave, Rose, Kirsty Barbara and me) Anyone else there that we missed?
Rose placed first, Barbara placed second and I placed first in my new octogenarian age category.
Here is a scene from this morning--Kirsty, Geralynn & me.
So what happened on
See ya next week! (Or next Saturday at Mead Garden if you are doing the Pumpkin 5K
