Today was the Franklin Classic race benefiting Mercy Children’s Clinic. Two years ago Jimmie and I ran this race and had a blast. Today it was Jimmie, Laura and myself. Aaron would have run, but we have two kids and we weren’t sure how to work all that out. Next year we’ll both do it!
I did much better today with my pacing. My first mile was 8:46 and I continued to run closely to that for each mile. The first half of this race was continuous up and down hills. I thought I was going to have to walk, but fortunaltey somehow I ran the whole thing. My finishing time was 54:26 and I placed 11th in my age group. 🙂
It was fun and now we’re all lazy doing nothing since we were up at 5:30 this morning!
Here are the pictures to prove it!
So, was that enough pictures for you? Wow. On a totally different side note I finally finished the movie COACH CARTER that I started about a week ago and I loved it. Great movie and great story. I love those kind of stories and movies!
