Since I just reported on my Ultimate Fitness Challenge, I might as well report on my running too. I ran the Race to the Taste 5K on Labor Day. The race is part of the Taste of Hudson. I ran it last year too. I improved my speed by about 30 seconds per mile and this year came in third place in my category (women over 50). It’s the first time I’ve ever won anything for something sports related! The picture here is me getting my winning t-shirt.
In less than two weeks, I’m running the fifth leg for a relay team in the Akron Marathon. I’m nervous about this one. It’s 5.6 miles which is the furthest I’ve ever run. I’ve been training but I never feel like I really know what I’m doing.
