Which is why I had a good and not so good experience at the May 12 Tucker Road Race 5K.
I met up bright and early with my Tucker Running Club friends. Here we all are just before the start (I'm WAY in the back).
Tucker runnersMy running buddies Susan and Carolyn are members (they are the ones who got me interested in joining the Tucker group).
Me, Susan and CarolynSo, I lined myself up in the back of the pack, expecting to walk and my Tucker runner friend Katie, who is 7 1/2 months pregnant was in the back too. I had such a nice time walking, jogging and talking with her, getting to know her better. We jog walked until about the last mile, and we walked the rest of the way in. We came in around 52 minutes. Not too shabby.
Well, unfortunately, the Tucker Road Race folks had a problem with the race timing and anyone who came in after 47 minutes was declared a non entrant! What?!?!? So, Katie and I, and anyone else who was slower than 47 minutes, didn't get any race results.
I supposed should be grateful that slow time wasn't recorded for posterity on the internet! ha!
I have no races for another month, so a little more time to let my muscle heal. No running on injury for me!
