Hog Trot 5K - Race Recap
I meet up with Karly. It was her second race. She had been dealing with an ankle injury, so we weren't sure how she would fair. Well, she did great. She set a new PR too! Yay Karly!
But here's the kicker. When the results started to post, I checked to see what my official time was. My time was 24.24 like I said, but my division place was 7th. 7th out of 9. I was in shock! 7th? How the hell? I finished 42 out of 269. Not bad right? This was the strangest race I have ever run as far as age group placement. There were some fast older runners out there. The top 4 AG placers ran under 22:30! That's amazing to say the least!
While I was definitely disappointed that I didn't place, I am happy with my time. Like they say, you can't place in all of them.
