Thanks for the goodie. I was right in the middle for my age group, 7 of 14. Some very talented runners in this race, probably former high school track stars. The top 3 in my age group are way out of my league. I'm still relatively new at this and I'm sure I can still improve, but I'll never be at the level that some of these guys are, even at this advanced age.
thanks for the comment on my blog. i understand about umbrellas for rainy walks, but this is more like a windy rain that blows your umbrella sideways lol. it has more to do with the slickness of my walking track when wet. i dont know what kind of coating they poured over it but when its wet, its slick and with the injuries i have suffered, i fear another. besides, my glasses get wet and i cant see where im going and i just really hate rain. but i will walk, even if its in place. thanks again.
