So here is a quick recap of race #1...
SJA Stingray Run. I look forward to this race every year and this was a particularly exciting year because my son's school puts on this race and he, along with his classmates were running the 1 mile and a bunch of MRTTers were running in both races as well. His class won a trophy,pizza party, and class funds for raising the most money in donations and race entries! Thank you all who ran for his class!

It is usually a great day at the beach. Not this year. It was about 45* and rain, windy, cold, rain. If it was another race I probably wouldn't have gone. I was frozen at the start and had one too many layers on. I was burning up by mile one. When I hit the halfway mark I think I was top 2 or 3 overall for the women and then boom, couldn't breath and I was spent. Great. I AM super happy for my good buddy Randi who went onto win it and Helen who took second place overall. I ended up 5th, yes I got beat by a 13 year old. :/ I did, however, win my age group because speedy friend 1 and speedy friend 2 took overall placings, congrats girls!!
There was one more race and that was for the little kids. The Stingray Dash. It usually is so cute and the kids are excited. This year they were cold and could care less. Poor Patrick was a popsicle and like and good stage mom I made him perform, err run!
