Sunday Morning I was up and at them early to fulfill my role as Polyp Wrangler (more conventionally known as a volunteer coordinator)
Some of the Polyps before the race
My favorite Polyp Planning Partner and Polyp Liaison
Rallying the troupes, complete with morning coffee
Directing the troupes-Jacquie’s got her coffee as well!
Part of our job was to participate in the warm-up. That’s me in the back left with my friend Shea. She’s not officially on the team, but she knows important people, so she was able to be a polyp!
Nearing the finish line…and yes, I wore the cowboy hat the whole race!
I love this picture! I think it’s so cool that Ed* got the Capitol in the background!
Jacquie ran the last .2 miles to encourage me to push it to the finish line! It’s a good thing she did! I was excited that I kept 15:32 minute miles.
My next 5k will probably be either the Arlington Science Focus 5K or the National Police Week 5k . I’m leaning towards not running the Arlington race, as I prefer to do those run/walk races….lessens my chance of being the last across the finish line!
My goal for the National Police Week 5k is break 45 minutes for total race by keeping a pace of 14:30.
My reach goal for the National Police Week 5k is to break my PR (incidentally set at this race last year) of 43:50 (that’s a 14:07 pace) .
My super reach goal is to break 40:00, which is a sub 13 minute mile pace.
