I’ve already told y’all about my 10-mile run Saturday, but what I COMPLETELY FORGOT to mention was that the first 8.25 miles of that run were dedicated to MCM Mama! (She might be the one going masters, but I seem to be the one with early-onset dementia.)
See, Mama is turning the big 4-0 this week and hosted a virtual race in her own honor. (I’m seriously thinking of stealing this idea for my 31st birthday in January. How convenient? 31? 3.1? As in 5K? Sounds like a virtual race just BEGGING to happen!!! Now if I just don’t forget about it before then…)
Participants had three choices: 4.0 miles (for her age), 8.25 miles (for the actual date of birth), or 40K (for the crazies, a.k.a. T and G! I don’t think they’ll be offended that I called them crazy. They freely admit they are runners first, logical thinkers second. And I want to be just like them when I grow up.)
On to the important stuff!
Mile 1 – 10:07
Mile 2 – 10:55
Mile 3 – 11:34
Mile 4 – 11:53 (water/chat stop)
Mile 5 – 10:56
Mile 6 – 11:07
Mile 7 – 11:53 (water/chat stop again. strange that it’s the exact same split as the first stop)
Mile 8 – 11:04
Mile 8.25 – 2:40
Total time – 1:32:02
Happy Birthday, Mama!!!!
