10. Nancy Young Run for Fun
Over the past few months I have been terrible at getting out to run. With the kids being sick and other commitments I am responsible for this spring I have gotten out very little. That is my disclaimer for the quality of my run. My race today was my school's third annual Run for Fun. I have really started to enjoy this race as it is a chance interact with them differently than I do the other 5 days of the week. I've run the race every year now, but this year there wasn't a trophy to add to my collection. Matt, you will love to know that one block in...my shoe came untied! I definitely heard about it from all of the people that passed me. It's never fun to be the person stopped at the side of the road one block into the race. It didn't hurt me too bad, it just meant that I had to weave my way through a lot of people to catch back up to where I was. I had 6 students beat me this year. I came in 25th place. The 6 kids that finished in front of me did great. I was really proud of them. At the end of the race I had two of them not too far ahead, but when I started to make my sprint to pass them before the finish line, they also began sprinting to try to beat each other. There was no way I would be able to catch them. They had a great photo finish. It was fun to watch. I kept it under 23 minutes which is always good, but I was no where near my goal of 20:30. Hopefully I'll get another run in this summer where I can beat it.
