State #5: Maine
State # 5: Maine. Freeport Half Marathon, Freeport Maine.
September 6, 2015
Finished: 2:05:21. Placed 5th in 40-49 female age group. Placed 63 out of 126 runners.
- This was a quick drive and easy because of the labor day holiday weekend.
- This was the smallest (population) of runners. 126 total.
- There were only 2 black women running this race.
- Organizer of race kept telling me about his Vietnamese wife and her Vietnamese friends and how they are on Vietnamese time...ok
- Hills but it wasn't bad and I didn't curse this time.
- I almost made the top 3 in my age division…so close.
- Excited to hit the first milestone of this journey...State #5! Besides the outlets and LL Bean, I never really explored Freeport. This was my labor day fun.
- I did notice a couple of African American people volunteering at the race. I know Maine has some parts of diversity.
