Cow Chip 5K

I think I've really done it this time. About a quarter mile into the race I felt this awful twinge in the back of my knee. Although I felt great before the race nothing hurt or Twinge. I started the 5K as though I was going to set a world record :). But that little twinge slowed me way down. I relaxed my pace and listen to my body. The course was tough very muddy a squishy, with lots of slippery leaves. I believe the worst part of the race really was the mud and the squishy grass, oh, I almost forgot about the puddles. I did make it to the end and was relieved. I've been rubbing and massaging the back of my right leg since the race. I probably did not warm up enough. But if there is an opportunity to do this again next year I will, if only to beat my own time 32:45. The results have already posted:

Elliott's team won the game today!!!. Today ended 4 years of high school football for Elliot. He is hoping to play in college. I'm really proud of him!!!

Ouch! Tell us again where it hurts. When you say, the "back of the knee" what do you mean? How did things go today?

I see your still putting in back-to-back races. Next year, I'd suggest you set up a race scheduled that's integrated into your BQ training schedule. That will keep you focused on improving.

Good news on your son's football results. After 4 years of playing there is little wonder why you are so proud of him.

Congratulations to you and to Elliot for the football. I hope he is able to play at the college level.
