I'd also like to draw attention to the medal around my neck. That medal right there is a gold medal for first in Women 35-39. It isn't really a gold medal, but it might as well be. So humor me. This medal, from the Hurricane Half Marathon, is the first of any placing of any kind since turning 35 (three freaking years ago!) That 35-39 age group is a tough one.
Also note that I was fourth overall. That ain't too bad either.
This second photo is a photo of my women folk and our hardware. Lookee there. I'd also like you to meet "Tina." Tina is the babe in the green bandanna and matching skirt. That Tina is a fun one. Last year at this same Hurricane Half Marathon, we spent a great deal of time going back and forth. She'd pass me. And while passing me she'd motion for me to follow her. Then I'd do the same. We've been long distance friends since and have grown increasingly freaked out by how much we have in common. Would you care for an example? We both take pictures of the odometers in our cars and we have the same shoes! Oh and we were both born in June. That helps.
Don't those shoes look fast? They are! It's the Brooks Launch. Get yours today.
