Today I am Thankful to be able to finish the Eerie Erie 5k!
I had a silent proclamation in my mind the entire time I ran it: I survived melanoma this year!
So, I jogged the entire 1st mile, then walked/jogged the rest.
Here’s my results e-mail:
You placed 291st out of 573 finishers in a time of 42:55 for a pace of 13:49 per mile.
Out of 251 women you finished 166th. The winning time for women was 19:47.
For 30 to 39 year old women you were 53rd out of 70 finishers. The winning time for your age and sex was 19:47.
Before having melanoma, I would have been SO embarrassed to have a 13:49 pace. I am simply thankful to be able to use my legs to run. Despite the cold. Despite the pain (due to my lack of training). Despite finishing towards the end. It’s ok – I am just so thankful! 🙂
