... A 5K in Salem at Minto Brown Park
- Sandi's Run was a first for Salem, and there are plans to for it to be an annual event. There were some logistic problems, and I will volunteer next year to help mark the route. We were told to stay left and there were a couple of spots we should have stayed right. All in all, I ran 2.49 miles in 36.08 minutes. I was on a pace that would have beat my Utah time by three minutes. I will use my extrapolated time of 44.91 as my time to beat on my next race. :)
Martha is cheering me on, and she is a distant cousin. We both are decendants Lorenzo Dow Young in our lines (our blood). She comes through his first wife and I from his fifth wife. Maybe a distant cousin, but a cousin is a cousin. :)
There was another cousin that was going to run with us, but she came up with an excuse that we must put in the record books. She pulled her hamstrings picking strawberries. Get will soon Kim! No more picking strawberries for you, or you can take a little chair to sit on.
Question, will the hamstring excuse keep her away from Eclipse? Go Team Edward!
