As any runners in the audience will know, my turning 30 put me in a new age category race-wise. Saturday was my first such outing with the larger than life 30 in bold print right there on my bib. Ouch.
So guess what? This chickie placed second in that brand new age group of hers. Sure, it wasn't with the fastest of times, and sure it was a smaller field (only a few hundred runners), but still... it's some hardware for something other than finishing without dying.
Next weekend is the frigid 5-miler. Who's in?
