Summary

Well, once I lost my shoes, it was bound to happen, I started running faster! Mostly because I was able to run more, and get in better shape, because running became more enjoyable post-shoes…

Story

Anyway, today I won 1st in my age division in the 2.8 mile race, and 3rd in my age division in the 4.8 mile race, and 3rd combined award in the master’s division (over 40).

I probably ran the first race (2.8-mile) a bit too fast, as I beat fellow A Snail’s Pace Running Club (and elite snail), Bob Morris, by a several seconds. But, Bob beat me by several and a couple more seconds in the second race (4.8 mile). Bob won 2nd place combined masters, due to his more experienced strategy of better pacing.
