Easter Time

Easter at the Ford house.
We had a fire in the fire pit and had hot dogs and salads of different types.
Paul and Robyn and kids.
Sari and Andrew and kids.
Mike and Brook and kids.
Mike and Heather and kid.
Lots of eggs to find.
The weather was very good to uses.
A small sprinkle of rain.
Had a great time visiting and caching up on what everyone is up to.
The old swing was rediscovered out back, I did not get out there for the pictures.
All had a good time.

The Big Run, Pear Blossom

My place over all was 420th out 1740 person.

For all males runners , I came at 222nd out of 544 males.

In my age group 50 to 54 years old
I came in 20th place out of 42 person.

I came in 3rd place out of 8, of all 54 year old males in the race.

And the Big on.
I came in 1st for the only person from Rogue River, to run in my age group.

With a time of 30 minutes, 43 seconds, at a 9 minutes and 53 second per mile pace.

There was 8 other persons with the last name of Ford running in the pear blossom, and I came in 3nd in that group.
Now the sad truth, there was 25 person over 70 years old, and 3 of these had better time thin me. ( 3 persons over 80 years old)
Next year the plan is to run a 29 minute, and the good part, I be the youngest runner in the age group, at age 55 years old Ha Ha.
