Wildroses Women’s Half Marathon

This morning I completed my 3rd half marathon.  It was a women’s only race so it was the first race that I have done without Don by my side and none of my walking buddies signed up so I was flying solo.  I started out walking with a really nice lady that used to run marathons but a knee injury had forced her to turn to walking shorter races.  She was great company but her pace was a full minute faster than mine.  I kept up with her for 4km but I had to say goodbye and slow down to a more comfortable pace for me.  I finished the race in 3:01:58 which is my best time but the real shocker was that I finished 5th overall and 2nd in my age group so I got a medal.  Yipppeeee for me.  Of course there were only 25-30 walkers so when you put it in perspective I was just lucky.
