Norwalk 5 miler -June 28, 2008
with Meredith's run, I almost forgot to post some photos of the Norwalk 5 miler -a low key Norwalk summer series race put on by our friend Don --these races are great workouts and are also a good social venue with local runners (Frank, Rob, John, Kate, Marty, my college friend Frank) and friends showing up.
The morning started auspiciously --first I got Frank and I lost to race I'd been to at least 10 times!! I was looking for the Wilton diner to take a right and couldn't find it --found out later it was now a bank. Then, was jogging to the start and the gun went off -that has never happened to me!!! I think it was because mentally and physically I was not into pushing it. But it turned out to be good as the first mile was slow and it was hot and humid!!! I turned out to feel good the last mile..and finished in 34:20.
