Ran down through Pah Tempe, felt ok the first mile, then not so great after that. I'm still lugging around too much weight.

This is the first race I have ran since 2017.  I have gained quite a bit of weight and I have also struggled with an ankle injury for the past 3 years.  I was happy today to just finish.  My goal was to break 30 minutes, so I was pleased with my time and effort. I did a 1 warm-up with Jarren before the race.

1- 8:06 I started faster than was planned

2- 8:46

3- 9:00 I had to stop and walk a few times.

26:30 (8:31 avg)

Anyway overall I was happy, I got a nice award for placing second in my age group.  Jarren did pretty good for not being in running shape 6th overall and 1st in his age group 19:42.

2 mile walk cool-down.

Just helped Jordan and Camille today over at their house, we tore out all of the carpet, pad, and tack strip. I was pretty sore when I got home.
