Would you believe I did this race today. The race was announced about two weeks ago. The race was to support the:
The Junior Navy ROTC cadets from Brien McMahon H.S. in Norwalk(Elliotts' high school) . I did this race not only to support the race director who son is also a cadet but also because I was a cadet at Norwalk High School ROTC. I was glad to be a supporter. The course was good not one of your easiest 5k but a bit hilly. The race started at 9:00 I left the race at about 9:30 because I had to get ready for Church. I later found out that I place 1st in my age group with a time of 26:02 the official results, the first woman was in my age group, she was the winner overall. The turn out was small but that is to expected for the 1st.
And before I Knew I'd placed, to support another race directors effort at 3:30 the I ran another first Annual 5k, this was an addition to The Robert Cooke Memorial Foundation Trek against skin cancer . This was really the 4th annual but it was the 1st time they added the 5k race. Normally there was the 5k walk and 5k cycle. Today all three took place. Wow it was really weird ruining in a race with bikes!!! the official results have not posted yet I will update. My time may have been 27:58? official results will tell. Whats worse than running a tough 5k in the AM
RUNNING AN EVEN TOUGHER 5k in the PM!!! how tough could an out and back be in a 5k!! but it was tough and hilly, and the sun was hot!! I forgot to take an advil before I left the house. Needless to say I was a little stiff. I left the race right after finishing also to get home and finish the dinner I'd left in the oven based on the race starting at 3:oo!!!
I'd promise Elliott we would go out also so after I checked dinner we went out and did 4.85 miles @ 15 min pace (thank God for little things)
And people if you think this is crazy wait till next weekend when I run a 5k on Sat, 5k on Sun, and a 5 miler on Mon!!!
