2017 got a slow start due to illness that lasted from early January clear into March. By June I was getting back into the swing of it, though my pace was slower than before. A very busy period at the end of the year slowed my progress again.
Races in 2017
- Shamrock ’n Run 5K
Boys and Girls Club, Janesville
March 11, 2017 at 10 am
3.11 mi / 30:00.0 (9:39 pace)
- My slowest 5K yet, but I expected this. I was hoping to finish in 30 minutes, and my official time was 30:00.0 on the dot! Not bad with a wind chill at 10 °F.
- Rachel’s Race for Long QT Syndrome (10K)
Skelly’s Farm Market, Janesville
October 14, 2017 at 9 am
6.21 mi / 58:03.3 (9:21 pace)
- Just a little bit faster than the 5K. Placement was 19th of 29 overall, 13th of 16 among males, and 4th of 4 in age group 50-59. The highlight of my race was helping a young lady named Megan finish the race; she placed 3rd in her age group.
