Miles for Meso 8k at the Park - My First Race in Years!

It was 49 degrees this morning with a 17mph north wind at the start of this morning's race down A1A and back.  It was the Miles for Meso 8k, a very good cause.  The race was directed by one of our Boca RoadRunners, Larry Davis, who has mesothelioma.  He's such an inspiration, always has a smile and a good word for you, and continues to run and race, for years now, since his diagnosis!

Such fun this morning..  I love the race environment--everyone is so upbeat and friendly!  AND we had good race times all around!  My runner Mark had a fantastic race, one week out from his marathon, the A1A Marathon down in Ft Lauderdale next Sunday, placing 2nd in his age group!

                                   Mark's on the left...

Jane and Marie both finished 3rd in their respective age groups, and I finished 2nd in mine--was very happy with that!  Jane will also be doing A1A next Sunday.

                                                 Jane and I warming up before the race...

Great fun!
