2011 Raging Road Rally 5K

Once again, it was a good time. I was so happy to be able to run this race this year considering I wasn't able to run the local race in the winter. My goal was to get somewhere under 25 minutes. Goal accomplished in a time of 24:17. Ironically enough, at the beginning of June I had the exact same time on a different course. Back was a little stiff last night and still this morning, but I think that's only telling me I need to work on my form because it was in my shoulders and upper back.

Oh and did I mention I received a trophy for 1st Overall Local Female Master's? There were so many people that came up to me later and asked what Master's meant! Really? You really wanna make me say that I'm now officially in a totally different group JUST for old people? Ah well, I guess since I really can't compete with the younger crowd, I'll take it. And did I happen to mention that the Overall Female of the whole race WAS in my age group? Chaw....she was in the 40-44 age group and came in at a time of smokin Joe Frazier 17 something! O M G!!!! I didn't know that was possible but she was blazing fast! And to top it off, she has 4 little kids that all placed in their age group. I swear the youngest one was 5 and the oldest couldn't have been more than 11 and I know for a fact one of them came in before me at a time of 23 something. I never saw him! lol I wonder if their mom makes them run before they get to eat their Wheaties in the morning!

To top the night beer at the beer tent.

Round II starts tonight with more beer and some great entertainment.

Now off to the parade.

I've been looking for the effective gear to improve my runs and stumbled upon A lot of their articles are dedicated to military and the ways of supporting your body under the extreme conditions. The things they write about nutrition could be useful for everyone who goes to the gym. I am following their advices and my results are improving.
