Once again, Jodi and I ran the Pumpkin Push 5k at Seward Park (we also ran it last year). I had forgotten how huge the hill is in the middle of the course, so it caught me a bit by surprise! I ended up doing a bit worse in my time than I had done a few weeks ago at the Salmon Days run.
It was cool, too, that my mom was here for the weekend so she got to experience an Evan and Jodi 5k run.
PerfectTime results are in now too:
249 90/104 168 Evan Dodds 30 Seattle WA 0:34:46.5 11:12
369 117/177 169 Todi Dodds 28 Seattle WA 0:34:46.7 11:12
Whoa, wait a second. Todi? Yes, that’s right. Jodi has decided to take on a second identity for anonymity in her running results. Or at least that’s one way to interpret it. The other way is that someone has trouble telling a carefully-lettered “J” from a “T” in one of those “one-box-for-each-letter” forms. Undoubtedly the same someone who must know someone actually named “Todi” in real life (have you ever met anyone named Todi?). Perhaps an Italian, missing his home… we’ll never know!
In any case, let’s pretend it says Jodi.
This was my first race as a 30-year-old. A whole new age class for Evan. Which kinda stinks. Had I finished this race on Friday, I would have been around the middle of the pack for my age range. In the 30-39 range, I am, sadly, 90/104. Ugh. I miss my 20s already (not really).
Here’s the map:
