Dam to Dam
Saturday I completed my second 5k- Iowa's Largest the Dam to Dam. I couldn't believe how many people were there! They said almost 3000 completed the 20K portion of the Dam to Dam. When I showed up to get my packet which was about an hour after the 20K started 5 people had already finished. That is unbelievable to me. I did really well. I finished about 5 1/2 minutes better than my previous finish at the Klompen Classic! This race didn't have the automatic timers so the timing isn't exact- when you have almost 5 thousand plus running in the 5k it is hard for everyone to start at the same start line/time- but I timed myself with my watch and feel that it was pretty close. Shane my co-worker was there at the end so I got some cheering from him and his boys. I am trying to get ready for my next 5k - which is in 2 short weeks! It is for the The Heart Connection Children's Cancer Programs- so I feel that my registration fee was going for more than just a t-shirt and a beer tent! Things are going well here- trying to stay cool!
