This race course was - as you can see - about .15 miles short.  I compared what my Garmin said with what a fellow runner's garmin said, and they matched.  Regardless, I ran 3 miles in 25:26!!  That's definitely a new PR for me.  As we crossed the finish line, they gave us popcicle sticks with our place on them (hey, this was the first running of this race) and mine said 56.  I was super happy with that!  56th place out of 370 runners - sweet!  I ended up leaving to meet Matt and the boys, and my runner friend who stayed behind texted me a picture of a medal and told me I had placed 2nd in my division (women, ages 20-29)!!!!!  I've never placed in any race before, and did not even begin to expect it.  What a sweet surprise!

Miles for the week: 9.60
Miles for September: 12.70
Miles for 2012: 254.32
