Wow that was tougher than I thought. The race went pretty well. It's a nice loop around Burnaby lake (2 loops actually) on soft trail. I don't run on trail too often so this was a nice change, but also a challenging change. There were very few flat straight-aways. I was always turning left or right, and going up or down. There was no extreme hills. The biggest climb was up about 7 steps to go over the dam.
It was a fun run, and my finisher medal is in the shape of a duck, which is cute and unique.
I also stopped by the Wildlife Rescue booth to chat with the volunteers and get some info. I signed up to volunteer, but we'll see because there is apparently a wait list to volunteer. I really hope I don't have to wait. I've always wanted to volunteer, but have hummed and hawed over what type of volunteer work I should do, and for whom. When I read about Wildlife Rescue there wasn't any doubt that this is what I wanted to do.
So here are my official results.
Final place: 83/230
Place in gender: 28/130
Place in div. (F 40-49. This is a new age division for me! Very exciting.): 7/43
Chip time: 1:57:47
Woohoo! I'm pretty happy with those results even though it's not even near my p.b. for the season. This run was tough for me!
