Won my age group (50-54) at 2004 Dennis McCormick 5K


This may have been the epitome of my running accomplishments. I've run much farther and put forth much more effort and was never noticed because I was in the company of greatness and finished in mid pack or worse. Running isn't about the accolades received but the rewards of knowing how hard you worked to simply finish the race. I accepted this award remembering it only reinforces that old saying, "If you can't outrun them, outlive them." Many people ran faster than me, even a 60 year old woman. But many more people were sitting at home on their couches and I am trying hard to not join them. Posted by Picasa
