Rolling on…

Today I ran the Sunrise Athletics 5k at Waiakea High School.  It was NOT at sunrise, but rather started at 9am.  The course ran through the parking lots, over the surrounding grassy fields and along the grass in front of the school.

Um, running through grass is much more energy consuming than running on asphalt.  And at 9am, the air is very warm and muggy.

So, though I didn’t beat my personal best (34:14)…..I still managed to place first in my age division! (There is a definite advantage to being old:  there are many fewer people running in my age group!)
