Rock Island 4-H 5K

I got up early this morning and made the hour drive over to Hempstead to run the Rock Island 4-H 5K at 7 a.m.  I have run this race several times, but this time they had only 14 runners in the 5K and another 8 in the 3K.  My hip was painful for a while, but eased up during the race.  I finished in 39:01, a little slower than normal.  It was a flat course and my GPS showed it to be 3.17 miles.  In any case, I was first place in the 60 and over age group and was given a medal and a watermelon.  I am just thankful that my running streak has survived the hip injury.  Today was running streak day 2,463 (20 days from reaching my longest streak).
