Well, the race is past and I didn’t do too bad. I placed 31st in my age group of 117 participants, and 391 out of 2,922 overall participants. My final time was 24:12. Click here to see the complete race results.
It was a very cold day, for South Florida, and my lungs ache from breathing hard during the race. Otherwise it felt great to race for the first time since high school more than 20 years ago.
I feel fueled by this pretty decent race and have decided that I wanted more fun. I will continue training and will find more races in the future.
