Race report: Reindeer Romp
This was my first 4K since high school. I was pretty pleased with it. My time was about 20:15; considering the slow start (WHY can't walkers start toward the BACK of the pack?) and the fact that over half the race was uphill, I certainly wasn't going to PR or anything. Still, it took me a lot of time and training to break 20 minutes for 4K in high school, and coming so close today felt good. I was actually 6th of 36 in my age group. Just think! Next time I race I will be in a new age group, and it won't be the one with all those in-training, college-age type people. Har.
