Edmonton Derby Half Marathon

EdmHalfMarathon2013

Yesterday I participated in the half marathon.  It was my first one this year compared to three 1/2’s  and one full last year.   My emergency appendectomy earlier this year really messed with my race plans and training this year. Don has some injuries so he didn’t train with me or participate in the race so it was a little lonely by myself…..not even Wally by my side (no dogs allowed).  I was thrilled with my results, a new personal best.  Fifteen minutes faster than my old half record and I even managed to come in 3rd in my age group.   The only benefit to getting older is that in the long distance races there are less people in your age category……otherwise my times are not really that fast.   The ‘grand-poo-pah’ himself, John Stanton, presented me with my 3rd place medal.
