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.
