1st place Masters Trophy

Masters Female winner trophy

I was not expecting to get this trophy, I just wanted to finish and that I did.
They call it the Masters Trophy which means I came in first, 40 and over, it pays to be older I didn't say old just older. But I'm very proud of myself, it was my first race, I was nervous about the whole thing, which was silly, For the first time since last September my knee had swollen up two days before the race, to the point I could hardly bend it, I iced it for 2 days and just prayed and thank God for letting me run as much as he allowed, funny thing is I was so nervous that I forgot all about my knee until the day after the race, now everything hurts, I believe God carried me thru and I have checked off another accomplishment in my life.
