First 5k (Still kicking myself!)

I raced my first 5k yesterday! It was a GREAT experience. It was a small event with 117 runners at a branch of my college alma mater. It was so much fun! I came in with a time of 29:27 which put me in 45th place over all. Here's where I am kicking myself. When I was coming back in I passed the last walker who was probably only a mile from the starting line. I knew if it had taken her that long it would be awhile before she got back and they don't do the awards until everyone has made it back in. I told Dh that we could leave since they only give awards to the top overall men and women, so we left. Later that night I checked my time and I got FIRST place in my age bracket!! I was so happy.. Then I saw that they actually were giving awards to each age bracket. So my first 5k, I got first place in my age group, and wasn't even there to get my award.. Doh!
