Syracuse Half and 5K

We decided to enjoy the Memorial Holiday by running races. We even had the pleasure of having Jake from St. Louis and my friend Alyssa join us. This was Alyssa's first race and she did amazing. Well, we were all winners in the end!
Here are the results for those that care. And for those that think I am bragging, well, I am. I am proud to call myself a runner now. I have gone from a fat, non runner, to a slightly skinnier runner that actually gets a pretty good time. So yes. I will brag and I will enjoy it.
Trent of course did great. He placed 3rd overall and got his PR of 1:23:59 for the half. That's a 6:25 min mile for 13.1 miles. I don't know how he does it.
Jake left us in the dust in the 5K. He placed 12th overall, 2nd in his age division, and got 21:08. That's 6:49 min mile.
Alyssa did awesome for her first race. A few months ago she couldn't run a mile and now she is smoking the 5K. It has been fun running with her every morning to prepare for our races! She crossed with a time of 26:47, finishing 72nd overall and 9th in her age division. Nicely done Alyssa!
I got my first medal ever! I got 2nd in my age division and was the fourth female to cross the line! I finished with a time of 23:57 and came in 41st out of 201 runners. That's a 7:44 min mile. Sweet!
Once again, thanks to Jill for watching the Hoard while we went and did our thing! You are great!

Congratulations to all of you!!! Glad Trent could run with his sore toe! Fun to see your cute family at the swim club after the race!!

Annie said...

Wow! Nice work. And, brag away. You're an awesome runner. And, with five tiny, very busy kids, you deserve every ounce of recognition! Good for you!

Kim said...

You are awesome! Someday I hope to be as good as you. Congrats to everyone on their killer times!

Alyssa said...

Wow! How did you find out all of that info? I was wondering about it! Thanks! It was fun to be in my first race and you needed me there to take the picture of you guys with your medals!!

Way to go AMY!! That is awesome. I don't even care that you make the rest of us look bad--you brag away!! You deserve it!

Wade Family said...

That's awesome.. that is a fantastic time! I still don't know how you put enjoy and run in the same sentence. I run but I sure can't say I enjoy it. (maybe one day!)

Tavan said...

Great job! You are inspiring me to become a runner... hmmm...

Also, love the pic of you and the kiddies at the cabin. So cute :)

akdoxey said...

You should brag! I have a difficult time finding a running partner and I think we would be perfect for each other. That's about the pace I run at. Anyway, good job- esp on the medal.

Heidi Ann said...

Wow! WAy to go Amy!! THat is fast ! It is so hard to start getting good times in races! That is awesome! Looks like you are doing well...We miss you!!!

Shannon said...

Congratulations! I want to be a runner - is it really possible?!

And as for the hike a week - you are definitely invited. I was thinking of going on one Saturday morning or late afternoon. I don't know what your schedule is like, but you and Jill should definitely come along.

bjensen said...

Way to go on the running!!! Maybe I'll look into taking up that hobby this summer..... NOT!!! Fat people don't run.

Karina said...

Congrats Amy!! You definetly have rights to brag! That is so awesome!

Sam said...

You SHOULD be proud. Congrats - that's great time.

Trevor and Loralee said...

You are sick to call running fun. But congrats on getting a medal!

Ginny said...

Jamie N said...

Urghhh! Why do I think of running as some form of torture? You're awesome. Congrats to all of you! And what are blogs for anyway? You brag away!!!

Julie said...

You are jammin'. How do you guys find all these races to run. It seems like you are always running something. I don't think I've ever run that fast, even for a minute.
