Saturday was my first race since being pregnant and having Anna. Chris and I ran the Run Clark Lake 12K. I ran this race in 2010 as well. Needless to say, I forgot how hilly this course was! It was a hot, humid and sunny race. My only goal was to run hard and finish strong. I knew I would not come close to my 2010 finish time (56:05, 7:31 pace). I started out slow and continued to get faster through out the race. I crossed the finish line in 1:02:21, good for a 3rd place finish in my age group. That is the same place I finished in 2010 but with a much faster time. I am satisfied with my time being that I just gave birth 8 weeks ago. After the race, Chris and I headed out for an additional 1.5 miles to make it an even 9 miles for the day.
Age group: 3rd / 10
Overall: 65 / 190
My 3rd place award. I love to get awards I can use!
