Ya...That's Right. I FINALLY WON!
Last week, I decided on my January Run For The Bling Of It Challenge race and found myself driving down to Eugene last night for a little Pottery Painting with Mai and my mom at Brush-Fire Pottery By You before settling in for a good night's sleep in preparation for this race:
I told my brother last weekend that I had finally entered a race I had a chance of winning. The winner would not be the fastest time, but rather the one who had the closest finishing time to their predicted time (without using watches or timing devices...THIS was hard!). I wanted to run faster than 10m/m so I predicted a finish time of 35:50 and I not only ran a good and mostly pain free (yay!!) race at 9:38m/m but I came in 1st in my age group!!...
...out of 1 :-D
...but I did come in 19/46 overall and I WON THE RACE!!! My predicted time was only 2 seconds off from my finishing time. Yes. I really am that good .
I proudly wear my bling!!! I got the sweatshirt for overall winner and of course my medal...
Natasha's Run in March, so I guess I can consider March FULL!
Thanks for listening me toot my own horn. I'm sure an occasion such as this win will not likely happen again, so you are safe from any future gloating :-D
