2nd Place!

I ran my first ever 8K race this morning, the Run for READ. It was a mostly off-road race. I wasn't expecting anything great, I hadn't run since my 20 miler last Saturday, spent Thursday evening getting soaked at the Hokie game, and the course was very wet and muddy. However, I finished 2nd in my age group, (M30-34)! My time was 35:52, for a 7:12 pace! I'm so stoked! Got my first ever age group award medal! SAWEET! My Brother-In-Law finished 1st in his age group, (M25-29), with a 34:43, 6:59 pace! We ran the first two together, 6:30 & 7:10 respectively, then I pulled back a bit up a steep climb, while Kev pulled ahead.

Yeah, we ROCK!
