My blog post is meant to be fun, this was an honest mistake. The race committee has issued apologies for the mix up, now onto the story & photos.
I was nervous going into my hometown 10k, once Friday evening came I was feeling much better. The weekend was brought to you by the letter W. Wicked,wild,wet & windy. We had a tropical storm hit us Thursday into Friday that didn’t let up until after my race on Sunday. Saturday was suppose to be the youth & family run, it was cancelled because of the weather with a promise to allow this years registration to be used in 2017. The clouds contained most of the rain up to Sunday, so I wasn’t wet on my run.
Saturday was a fun day seeing good friends and familiar faces as I set off to the expo.
Even with another race number malfunction (this time with a safety pin) I still achieved a milestone! I found out that the race was half a kilometre short, it was a 10k that was actually 9.5k. Either way I set a personal best even with the extra half of a K I’d still be under my 1:45:19 previous best time.
The moral of the story is, things can “click” at any moment to make a special occasion even better even with upset or mixups. What an awesome way to start my 4th year running with a new Personal Best time and great memories.
