I finally ran my last race of the season – the Storm the Campus 10 miler at UCF (that’s where I’m going to school by the way).
Now I’m free at last!
For some reason the race wasn’t terrible like I thought it would be and I actually loved running through campus because I get all nostalgic about my time as an undergrad. Then I actually came in 5th in my age group which is as good as it’s going to get for me and “placing.” There were 23 in my age group, not 5 like most of you are probably wondering. I finished in 1:34:52, much faster than I expected and only three minutes slower than when I ran the race two years ago.
Of course, my running love was there as well so that makes every race better.
And we ran into several friends.
The one thing I was looking forward to most about this race is the medal. The race started three years ago and each year the medal has been a letter in “UCF.” So I proudly “earned that F.”
I did not run the race last year to get the C medal, however, and I’m OK with that. I got the important letters.
Now I can take a little long-distance running break. School is out in three weeks and then I’ll really have to figure out what to do with myself. So far, I have several concerts planned, tickets to MegaCon, a visit from DC Melissa (yay!), a girl’s weekend in Savannah, and a trip to San Diego to visit my mama. It’s shaping up to be a pretty good summer. 🙂

The medal for that race is awesome! And I normally hate all medals!!
How can you hate medals?! There’s nothing better than a big hunk of metal you can wear on your neck to remind you of the terrible race you had!
