I WON A RACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never in a billion million trillion years thought I would ever be saying that line!!!!!!  It's not really as impressive as it sounds.
The Thursday night running group took a field trip tonight.  We went to a small college where they were having a 5K and an 8K as a fundraiser for their cross country team.  Hardly anyone ran the 8K and when I finished they said, "you're the first girl!!! YOU WON!! YOU WON!!!  At the moment I was quite nauseous and just felt like puking and it didn't really register what they were saying.  One of the other running group members told me a few minutes later and then I realized what they were saying when I finished!!  Only 2 of us from the running group ran the 8K.  It was mostly on grass (grass that needed mowed!) and was one hill after another and some of it was on slanted ground.  It was tough.
I guess this was a good workout for me since I am doing a 10 mile trail run Saturday morning.
Well, Runner Nerd needs to get to bed, have to work in the morning.
