Yep, that's me on the left in the yellow singlet & black knee-length tights, looking down at the ground, intently focused on running. As you can tell, it was a very bright & sunny day out. Beautiful, in fact.
Erik took the photos, so don't ask me at which point of the race this was. I was just running the thing. ;-) Of course, he could tell you much better than I could.
This picture was taken far enough away that I'm OK with posting it. ;-)
Yes, the picture is blurry, but of course, again, that's actually a good thing, considering that I'm a bit camera shy. ;-) I think this picture was taken somewhere between mile 2 & 3. Or maybe I was approaching the finish line at this point. I have no idea. Ask Erik.
At any rate, it was definitely taken sometime during the final stretch of the race.....
OK, that's all the photos I feel like sharing. I wish there were more pictures of the course itself, because it was really scenic & beautiful! Next time, I think I'll ask Erik to take photos of the course & the grounds, & not just of the race itself..... ;-)
Yes, I think there'll be a next time for this race. I want to come back next year & do MUCH better. Next year, I'd like to shoot for a sub-30 minute finish for this race, if at all possible. I think that'll be my next long-term goal for the 5K distance. I'd love to run 9-minute miles, or even 8's, but right now I'd certainly take 10's! A 9-minute mile (for every mile!) would certainly be something to shoot for in the future......
