Races

“The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.” ~John Bingham

I used to run quite frequently when my little boy was really little.  In fact, he actually participated in few races with me via running stroller AND he ran his first 5k with me last Thanksgiving (2010).  Anyways, here’s a list of races that I remembered participating in back in the day with dates, finish times, and paces.  I’ve also included a list of future races that I’m registered for or intend to register for.  Let me know if you’d like to join me!!!

  1. Carly forgot to mention that she and I both got a medal in the CommonWealth 5K back in 2006. I got Silver and She got Bronze. Back then hardly anyone was running. Now the competition has quadrupled!
