This past weekend, i participated in my first road race since my back surgery. It wasn't the best re-immersion experience but i am happy to have gotten it out of the way. A few little mishaps leading up to the race: bumper to bumper on the Edens, following vague directions of where the packet pick up was, missing the start for the 5K and then being 5 minutes late to the second wave of starters and wearing to warm of clothes including a back brace. Not ideal but finished. That is my new goal for this year... Just to Finish. I am not concerned about times, just to finish and hopefully not to be dead last.
