Mike, that is terrible! I am glad you were not hurt. Would you feel comfortable in calling animal control, or would you worry about repercussions? Will you run that route again? Such a shame, and, yes, shocking!!!
Had a meh race yesterday. One of my biggest 5ks, I always plan to do well, but for some reason, just don't.
They did change the course this year, changed the finish to an awful .3 mile uphill, but frankly, I just wasn't on.
Still over two min faster than last year with the easier course when I was poorly trained, but a good two min or more slower than I had hoped. Came in 3/9 in the 65-69 with a
31:16, missed 2nd by 4 seconds.
Oh well! Got a bright orange shirt... and a plaque and sure was glad to place. Fast Friend came in 1/52 but her pace was off by a good two minutes.
And, we are both uninjured
. For us to make it to the start and the finish of any 5k is a win!!
Just a little creaky today.
my next big race is in February, although I sure would like to win a bobble head Santa trophy in December!!!
