After the race I did a 1 mile cool down and spotted my Uncle, Harrison Hensley. He looked great!! I hope that I can still run a race at his age. He's 79! He took 2nd in his age group.
Here's my gold medal. :-)
Place: 1st / 17 in Age Group
In other running news, I purchased some new gear. I ordered a pair of Brooks Ghost 3's on a whim. I have always ran in Brooks Adrenaline which are a stability shoe. I found the Ghosts, a neutral shoe, on Running Warehouse for $59 plus an additional 20% off! Not only that, but they come in a narrow! So for that price, I figured I would order them. Of course, I ordered the wrong size. I like a little more room in the toe box. I ordered another pair in a half size bigger and shipped back the ones that were too small. I hope they work out. If not, I will return them since I also ordered a pair of Brooks Adrenalines from my local running store. They never seem to carry narrows in stock.

I am sure you can see Kara's book in the background of the photo. I had a 40% off coupon for one full price book for Border's. I was having such a hard time trying to decide which book to buy. I had the Runner's Palate, Runner's Diet, Complete Book of Running for Women and Kara's book in my hand. I decided to go with Kara's book. I am saving it to read while camping at the end of the month.
I also ordered 2 singlets and 1 short sleeve running top from Running Warehouse. Again, it was a steal! $39 for all 3. They should arrive tomorrow so I hope they fit. If not, RW has free shipping on all returns so no sweat if I need to ship them back.
