New 10K PR!

What a cold morning!  But it was totally worth it.  The proceeds were going towards my great aunt & uncle to purchase a wheel chair van.  Not only did they make enough money to buy a wheel chair van, but it will be brand spanking new and equipped with a wheel chair hydraulic lift and 2 years of insurance paid up front!!!! 

I totally forgot how hilly this course actually is since it has been 2 years since they (my aunt & auncle) were able to put on this race due to my aunt's strokes and now being wheel chair bound. 

I was hoping to finish 45:00-45:45 but came in at 46:52, with a 7:33 pace.  I placed 6th out of 88 in my age group and 171st out of 1,183 overall.  I am pleased and hoping to reach my 45 minute 10K goal next month.

Re: New 10K PR!

  • exciting for your family and  Good Job for you PR!

    There was a group of runners going up for that from the Toledo Roadrunners.  I loved the 4.8 mile course and had hoped to do the 10 mile some year.  We'll have to see if they return to those distances.  

    And - that is a hilly course!

  • Awesome!!!  I ran a lot slower than that, lol.  I didn't even stick around to look at my time since I knew I was taking it really easy.  It was a fun course and such a great turn out!  I looked for you, especially at the turnaround because I knew you would be ahead of me, but I must have missed you!

    Did you see the runner dressed as Michael Phelps?  He must have been freezing!!

  • I looked for you too!!  My dad and I hung back at the start since we knew it would bottle neck.  I'd say we crossed the starting mat about 5 minutes after the first runner crossed. 

    I did see him.  He made me cold just looking at him!  Did you see the hooters girl?  She had the tank & shorts on.  Burrr!!!
