Yesterday was the Tubbs Romp to Stomp out Breast Cancer 3K Race and 5K Walk. We put together a Colorado Mountain Mama team, complete with t-shirts and boas!
The race went well for me, Laura also ran but felt like she had a bit of an off day. I went out fast and by the 1/2 mile point I was in the lead for the ladies, and 5th overall. The course was fairly flat, and went out onto Lake Dillon for some of it. I was able to pass one guy on the lake, and then able to pass another guy on the only hill. I ran the entire race, no walking at all this time.
Overall I was 3rd in the race, and I was the first female. My time for the 3K was 19:10. They gave me a new headlamp, an outdoor emergency tool and a nice trophy. I got to say hello to my idol, Danelle Ballengee, who is recovering well from her devastating fall (Google her name for her amazing story)
Then it was onto the 5K walk. There were 6 of us Mountain Mamas and about 2,000 other people there, it was packed. It was like the Chicago Marathon. We “lost” Laura, actually we left without her while she was changing in the bathroom....”bad mamas” (that’s why she isn’t in the photo). She eventually found us and we were back together as a team. The walk was great, lots of great costumes, and lots of survivors.
All in all, a very fun time and a wonderful end to my 6 week in a row racing streak.
