What a fabulous race! I had so much fun at the Sweetheart race this morning. I got to see many of my running friends, challenge myself on a hilly 4 mile course and come home with hardware! This race has the usual age group categories for awards, but also adds a couples award system. The age categories for couples are calculated by adding the two ages together and the times are taken by adding the two runners times together. I picked Brian to be my 'Sweetheart' so with him being 38 and me being 41 we were in the 70s division. This should be a pretty competitive category, especially since we were old for this category coming in at 79 years. However, Brian is a very fast runner and helped us to place 3rd in our division. Brian and I also got trophies for each coming in 3rd in our individual categories.
As you can see from the photos below many of my friends also received trophies and medals. Congrats to Frank, Emmy, Andie, Ronnie, and Paul.
