NY Bot. Garden photos and Wilton 'where the wild things are' 5K
Above, photos from NY Botanical garden --pink is everywhere!
Frank won overall in 20:35 -his seco9nd career win!
Entrance to nature center and start of the race
The sign directing us into the nature center
the day after Sybil, I decided w/Frank to run this low key half trail 5K --the Hook 1/2 marathon was too long...westport was too competitive...so we decided that this would be a good one to run --plus we would support the Woodcock nature center for earth day.
Well-what a good decision I made:) --First of all, the More marathon was cancelled due to heat so that made my decision to run short easy (as opposed to lake waramug 50K) -and we lined up, and Frank won overall and i came in second. we met some new friends
and the race director was thrilled that we came. For winning we each got a tote bag, nalgene water bottle, hat, and t-shirt --more than I ever expected for my entry fee.
It turned out to be a nice course, too. And I felt Ok racing, as it was different muscles -lol. As I write this Monday though, my quads are hurting and my feet hurt from Sybil...6 miles on pavement is painful..
