An early start to a good day. We meet up at PTI airport for the Blue Points 5K on the Runway at PTI. It included several members of the Woo Hoo Crew in addition to runners from all over and all ages. The weather couldn’t have been better. It was a balmy morning with cloudy to clear skies, so a perfect temperature for a morning run on the runway. Melanie W., Melanie J. and I warmed up with a slow mile before the start of the race. Ralph, Carole, Jordan, and Russell were also there to run. All of us had good runs (at least far as I know) with a few personal records (PRs) thrown in. I finally beat my PR from years ago to finish at 23:12 which is a great start to my summer. We took a team picture for the race and I can’t wait to see the plaque we’re receiving later on.
After the race, Melanie, Melanie and I drove over to Bald Eagle Trail to run 3.2 or more miles on the Trials in honor of the 12athon Trails Days challenge. Took it easy as a cool down and stretch run after our race. We ran in our bibs from the race which elicited a few interesting looks from other runners on the trail. We decided to call our trail run the AnyWoo Trail Run in honor of the event and the fact that we ran on a random trail. After posting, we got our 4.2 points for running trails for the 12athon Virtual Challenge.
All in all, it was a great morning of running with great friends. Thanks again to the Crew for an AWESOME time.
