Fit To Ride
Finally got a 5k medal! Fourth time’s the charm. To recap:
Magic City, wrong medal, too slow [Proof of Concept]
Drum Run, no medal, too slow [Strolling To A Soundtrack]
La Jolla, medal, in the mail [Strolling Along]
Green Bay, medal! [Strolling Around and Around and Around]
Does bling matter? You might as well ask if horse show ribbons matter. and that’s just plain heresy.
Also t-shirt & bib number.

Pace difference must be from walking 3.17 but having my official time calculated over 3.1. Not sure why they decided on 60 for my age. Not that it matters for this. I would still have been last, 9 of 9, in 55-59. I have no explanation for the wandering bib numbers. I am filed under #10308 in the results. The 209 appears to have been printed for the virtual race. Maybe they renumbered. I assume the bib itself is an desirable artifact for racers to collect. Certainly nicer than horse show numbers.
What are you doing for exercise these days?
Stay safe. Stay sane.
