Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!
I’m so happy we did it. We didn’t come even close to placing obviously but I was very pleased with how we did considering we’ve only been running for the last 10 weeks.
I think we placed 29 and 30 err…make that 39 and 40 overall, Duhdee was the #11 male in his age bracket and I was #10 woman in mine. Also, Duhdee appeared to be the first person to finish who was pushing a stroller, lol. I think that extra 45 lbs. he was pushing deserves some extra credit 😉
We’re now going to drop down to only 2 runs/week for the winter. We’re going to try to improve our times. We finished in a little over 30 minutes, the first place runner finished in a little over 15 minutes. Ouch!

omg…that is amazing. I’m thinking of doing your 5k run plan you posted a long time ago. I like a routine plan :).
I highly recommend the Couch to 5K plan. We went from never running to running a 5K in such a short time period. The best part was that I was only sore during the first week! I expected it to be miserable but we built up so gradually that it ended up not being very hard at all.
I still think you’re crazy, but I am very excited for you! Good work! And I’m also relieved to hear that Monkey’s new classroom is going well. Hooray!
Congrats to all that ran this race!! Great job for not running very much!! I ran this race too and did it in 28 minutes but had to leave before I found out my place will this be posted anywhere??
Congrats to you too! Tom posted them on CoolRunning.
Oops, we were 39 and 40! I knew I should have waited to post this! lol…I totally don’t understand the results beyond that. 🙂
