Some co-worker friends and I ran the One Nation Under God Independence Day 5k this morning in Sweetwater. The weather could not have been more perfect and the course was flat, a great combination. However no PR for me. Not sure what I am doing wrong. The aura of a migraine started before I got to mile two. I didn't get the headache until about 20 minutes after the race.
Even though no PR, I am ok with my results. Fourth of fourteen.
I wish they had broken out the ages like most races do, then I would have placed first in the 55-59 group! My 62 year old running friend got first place again. She has won every race she has entered.
Not sure what happened with this picture....but I like it anyway. I loved this race. They opened with a prayer and a very talented lady sang the Star-Spangled Banner. Then afterwards they presented the gospel of Jesus Christ. The proceeds go to Young Life, which I think, is a Christian organization for young people.
I didn't get to stay for the awards due to the busting headache. By the time I got home I was pretty sick, but some Tylenol helped, and later when I was smart enough to take the migraine headache medicine, that helped more. Just felt a little drained all day....but still a great day and so much to be thankful for on this Independence Day.
