Race for Roofs UPDATE

Official times are now posted, and they say 1:01:21 for me, so officially a personal best!  They also show I placed 63rd overall out of 89, but a lot of those listed ahead of me only did the 2.5 mile option.  Not sure why they aren't separated into two lists, but whatevs.  I am still thrilled with my results!

Race for Roofs

Saturday was the 5 mile Race for Roofs, held by Englewood Community Development Corp.  This is just a small neighborhood race, but it is still one of my favorite events for several reasons:

  1. Proceeds go to provide rental assistance to neighborhood residents.  Since I work in affordable housing, this is one of my passions.  Everyone deserves a safe affordable place to live.
  2. I know several people there, and hearing people cheering my name as I approach the finish line really gives me an extra boost.
  3. Homemade cookies in the swag bag!
