Great New Year’s Eve Race 2018

December 31, 2018 – Stow, Ohio – 5K

Well, this was the 9th year of running this race! I had to look back at my website and count the years! This is the first one that I remember being a total downpour, however! It had been raining all afternoon and continued throughout the race! The temp was in the 50’s so that was good, I guess. I ran into my friend Debbie and her husband and then also runner friends, Chris and Alise (pictured below). I have run into Chris and Alise for the past 4 years of this race!

It was pretty miserable, I’m not going to lie. I walked a bit of the stupid hill. In spite of all of this, however, I ran a pretty good race! I was faster than last year’s time by like a minute. I ran a 33.27 which was 10:47/mile. Here are the rest of my stats for folks keeping track at home:

Overall place: 255/413; All female: 108/232; Age group: 14/37. For my age group and the overall female I was in the top half so that is awesome! I’ll have to think of something really cool to do for next year’s 10th year! Maybe a prom dress and a tiara??
