Another Race Is Finished!

11 posts in this topic

  Yesterday I finished another race where I came in 1 hour and 23 minutes which is considered good despite it being really warm (80 degrees).

  Another reason why I'm glad I did the 12k runis I saw alot of people paying tribute to the Boston Marathon. 

  In fact, the Bloomsday race officials included Lilac colored bands in our registration packets which say "Bloomsday Stands with Boston".

  Here's a photo of the what the bands look like :

Oops, by the way when I was running the 12k race, I saw a couple of runners wearing shirts which said "Finish The race" which was worn in tribute to the Boston Marathon.

Scout-I usually begin training for Bloomsday on March 1st.  This year I alternated with walking/running one week then switched to going to the YMCA to train on the elliptical cycles the next week in order to protect my joints.
