Lori Survives Falmouth Road Race

Lori at 2006 Falmouth Road RaceWe were in Falmouth Ma on Cape Cod today so Lori could run the 34th Annual Falmouth Road Race. This was Lori's first race of any kind and her goal was pretty much not to be laughed off the course. She more than succeeded, finishing the 7 miles in 80 minutes and felt fine during and after the run. Though she joked about coming in last ever since she agreed to fill in on Team Cutting Edge for someone who had to drop out after registering, she actually came in 7,421st - far from last in the field of over 10,100 runners.

Lori was so in the zone, that she didn't even look our way as she passed me and my mom cheering her on just shy of the finish line. She was even overheard stating that is was easier than she feared and she could have done it faster. So on to her next goal of the Boston Marathon in April 2007.
