Bonnie Got Gold and I Bombed

Today was the Sooner Games (5k, 10k, and half marathon) here in Oklahoma City. Bright sunny day great for running but it did end up getting a tad bit warm, but I'm not complaining I'll take that over frigid weather any day.

Anyway, Bonnie ran the 5k, 39:33, not a PR, but good enough to come in first in her age group!!! Yes she got a GOLD medal for her efforts. Another great effort on her part and once again I wasn't around to see the results, but let me be the first to tell all in blogland I did HEAR about it after I finished!!!! I'm very proud of her and how she keeps improving.

Me on the other hand, I ran the half marathon, was just trying to get in under 3 hours. Well I wish almost counted in running like it does in horseshoes. The gun/chip time officially said I did 3:00:06 and it wasn't because of a bathroom break that I missed the sub 3. My watch on the other hand said 2:59:56. Well there will be other races and other days.

We had fun that is what counts!!

I say you meet your goal!!! Your watch had to be more accurate than the race clock with your chip. I wonder about those sometimes.

Glad to see that you both had great races. Keep moving forward.

Even Boston gives you the extra 0:59 to qualify. I say enjoy your 3:00.
