my last 20-something 5K....

Saturday was the State Games 5K road race at Bonita. I was super hot! (Sunday and Monday's high was 99!!) I wasn't real nervous, but I wanted to do well since it was my last one in the 20 something age groups... I ended up in 3rd, which was fine. It's just too hot this summer. There's no point trying for a PR in the heat. My PR's in the 5K and 10K were both in February. Before that, my PR was set in December. Anyway, here's pictures from Saturday morning...

Award ceremony.... I got 3rd in my age group. The two people handing out medals are Olympic medalists! I cant remember their names. The man held the long jump world record for 25+ years and has gold, silver and bronze from the '68 and '72 games. The lady was a sprinter and has gold, silver, and bronze medals from '68, '72, and '76.

Mike got 3rd in his age as well.

David got 1st in his agr group!
