A Pleasant Surprise!

Course was nice & had quite a bit of shade. Was organized well. An earlier start like 7 or 7:15am in the future would be nice to beat the heat. Looking forward to next year!

My first race

This was my first time ever participating in a race. I ran while in my second trimester of pregnancy and while having a disability called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. (EDS) is a group of disorders that affect connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues. I’m happy to have completed this race!
