A new personal best and 1st in my age group at the Home Run 5 Miler to benefit the Home of the Innocents. This race is a Schadt favorite held at the beautiful Bernheim Forest outside Bardstown, KY. The course was a hilly, but fast 5 miles. It was amazing and so fun to hear my name announced as the top finisher in the womens 24-29 group. My time was 37:37, with a pace of 7:24/mile. I think I finished in the top 5 – 8 women in the entire race, but am waiting for the official results to be posted online later this week.
On another note, I spotted one of my very favorite runners, 72 year old Rose Taylor, at the race this morning. She is so inspiring and adorable and I love how she says, “I just never stopped running.” She has her cute running shorts, tights, short grey hair and a smile on her face. I know she insires many to keep running. Running is a great lifetime sport and hope to be running races at the age of 72.
