5 Peaks, Albion Hills
On September 13th, I completed my first public run. 7.1 km. Albion Hills. Hills. Did I mention the hills? Very narrow paths. A lot of twists and turns. But I made it. In 45:07:1, which made me 54th out of 164 women running the race. Pretty cool.
An emotional day to say the least. I won’t mention the meltdown over the forgotten wallet that caused us to be an hour behind schedule. I will say that rounding the corner up to the parking lot, when I heard the din of the speakers at the start/finish line, I cried. Totally involuntarily. And I cried crossing the start and finish line, but I knew that would happen.
Thank you to hubby, Calla, Steve, Sammy and Addie for cheering me on. (And to Calla for the following photos.)
