Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified. - 1 Cor 9:24-27

Blueberry Ridge 12K Trail Race - Update

The 'official' results are posted.

My finishing time via the organizer's stopwatch was 1:28:11

I was in the back of the pack at the starting line.  So, can I subtract a bit?  =)

There were 21 women who ran the 12K.  If my math is correct, I placed 5th in my age group (out of 7) and 16th overall for women.  There were 21 men who ran the 12K.  Overall, I was 36th out of 42 runners.

I'm still really proud of myself for running a trail race.  Sure, I was at the back of the pack, but only 42 crazy people raced that course!

Next up:  Keyes Peak 10K Trail Run and then my first half marathon

  1. Great job on your trail race!

    I am addicted to trail running. I wish I could pust the jogger on trails. If I could I'd be running 100 mile weeks! ;-)
