The low bib numbers, not elite

Posted Feb 08 2013 2:06pm
I have mentioned it before that for local races I tend to get small race numbers. I wish I would have saved them all now, but in hindsight I have no idea where I would have stored them.

The first year I ran my bib number was #7. This was my first race of 2011 and the real start of my running. I used this race as a milestone to get me to my first half marathon a few months later.  I look at this photo and laugh. I look like such a newbie, but at the same time I love it as it is a starting point.

One year later in 2012, I was feeling stronger, slimmer and had more confidence and obtained my current 5K PR. I was looking forward to the year ahead in racing and had big goals in place for 2012.  My bib number was low again at #5.
Race Recap
 This was supposed to be my PR race for the year. That is not happening so I will have to move that out to 2014 goal. I have only ran once this week because I continue to experience some pain as my body adjust to growing a baby Wednesday. My goal on Saturday is to run as much as I can and have a great time. I received an email that my bib number is #4! Not shabby. I have a feeling that my photo is going to look hybrid of the photos above. This year I am going to rock more pink and less red. :)  Happy Friday!
