I never expected to win a race that size. It was complete shock and excitement when I saw my name listed as the overall female winner of the race on Sunday. The race director assured me things would be straightened out and they’d send my award. Well, I was just informed there was actually one woman who finished ahead of me in 41:xx. She ran through the 5k finish chute instead, so her chip didn’t register properly.
You've all have been so encouraging. I’m happy with my time, and it’s a little a lot silly in the grand scheme of things……..but is it all right to say I’m feeling just a little crushed right now?
I'm a just another Jersey girl adjusting to life in the south. In addition to being a mother-runner, I work full time outside the home, and enjoy the perks (and challenges) of being married to a commercial airline pilot.
I try my best to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle, and to set a good example for my 3 children. You can usually find me training, and even racing, around Atlanta while pushing them in a jogging stroller.
