Heart and Sole 5 miler

I was lucky enough to have a great friend of mine from Rochester come down and visit me for a weekend in April. I also conned her into running an all women's 5 miler race.  This race went through downtown Columbia and kicked my behind.  Mostly because at about mile 2 after going down a steep city side you then had to hike it all the way back up to the top. Not fun! I made it to the top but had to stop for a minute to catch my breath. Then my legs felt like jello and didn't want to start  back up again.  On the contrary my friend who thought she wasn't prepared felt awesome after the run while I felt like death.

This race was sponsored by Lexington Medical and was to help spread awareness of heart disease in women.  There was a total of 1,300 runners and walkers total.  My favorite part was the last half mile where it was all downhill. I made up some great time at that point. Then at the end I got a rose and 3 chocolate covered strawberries!!!   I also got a great massage afterwards. :)

My time once again wasn't up to par with my last 5 miler which was a little over a year ago. I was slower by 4 min.. I placed 102 out of 524 runners for the 5 miler. I placed 18 out of 92 for my age group. My time was 45.38.  Not horrible but not my best. Plus the fact that I thought I was gonna die during it.  Boy I can't wait for my nose surgery to have my deviated septum and spurr corrected. I imagine it will feel amazing after it's done and healed and I can finally breath like a normal person.
