Our first place 10k race :)

This morning Chris and I ran in the Lake Cities  Spirit of Christmas run. We participated in the 10k  ( 6.2 miles) race. The run was all along the lake and quite nice.Weather was humid as we have had storms all day but were fortunate enough to get the run in before they hit.
This event was a small community race to raise money and toys for local families for Christmas.

Chris and I both placed first in our age divisions which was not hard to do given most people were younger than us :) But.... race completed and we are happy with our first place medals.
Chris had a good race, I have had better :) We have noticed I am having so much trouble with fatigue ever since the last rounds of radiation which ended the end of May. It is showing up everywhere, including my running.

Chris keeps reminding me it has not been that long but it is difficult when you can't do what you used to be able to do.Time...time..time.

 There were several members from our church there and all first place winners! Yay for FBC!!

First place - wow! Congratulations! I'd only have a shot at that if I were the only one running. But you know, as cancer survivors, we win every time we enter a race or even run a 2 mile training run, don't we?

Art, I am laughing because that may just be how I managed first place... Being the only one in my age division! But, hey I showed up and ran right?? :)
