Autism 10K - finished 1st in my age group!

Woo hoo!  I've never won anything in my life so this was quite a surprise!  It was a 10K trail race with lots of hills and hiking to be honest.  It was extremely muddy and my pace was much slower than a normal 10K, but somehow I managed to get 1st place in my age group!  I was SO surprised!

My time ended up being a little over an hour, which was good since I went slow through all the mud, even had a wardrobe malfunction and had to take my jacket off as I was hot, plus my shoes and legs were covered in mud.  

I haven't done a trail run in quite a while so I was kind of disappointed in my time until I found out I placed first in my age group...I'll take it!

That's awesome. I doubt I will ever take any places on my age group but I do want to do a trail run and not fall on my arse

Awesome! I did a 5K walk today for the local autism society. I did it in 40 minutes. I know, nothing impressive, but I was stuck behind large groups of slow walking people! I passed when I could. I finally got around most of them and had a fast mile. My husband then joined me with the wagon with our two kids, so I slowed once again! I'm hoping when I lose more weight I will be able to start running more. Running is just hard on me with these 20 extra pounds hanging on my body!
