What a HUGE success this event was. Thanks to all that were involved in volunteering, donating and participating my aunt and uncle will now be the proud new owners of a brand new Ford cargo van fully equipped with a hydraulic lift for a wheel chair! and 2 years of insurance will be fully paid for up front. Amazing!!
It was such a cold morning! I appreciated the weather about 1 mile into the race. I ran with my dad and like always, he was pushing me hard. I completely forgot about how hilly the course is. My goal was to finish around 45:00-45:45, which did not happen. The first mile killed us! It was so bottle necked and we were dodging people left and right. Our pace when we hit the 1 mile marker was 8:45!! Once the 10K course split off from the 5K runners, it thinned out and gave us more room to make up some ground. We ended up crossing the finish line at 46:52. This gave me a new 10K PR, beating my previous best by 1:53.
Finish Time 46:52
