Today was my anual 10K race with the Teton Dam Marathon. It was a harder race this year than last year. If any of you are familiar with Rexburg, two of the miles in the middle of the race were up Millhollow road (which is a steep, long hill). My goal was to beat my time from last year but I took a few minutes longer this year because of the hill. At the awards ceremony, though, I was surprised to hear my name called out as second place in women 35-39, especially since I was 2/3 of the way back in the line of runners. But the older you get the less people your age run, so the better your chances are of winning a medal. In some of the groups 50 or older their were only two places because there were only two people running in that age group. Because we live in a college town, there are a lot of 18-30 year old runners.
