Yesterday I ran the Melbourne Cricket Club 5K, with proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics, and the club itself. It was a small but well-organized event, through the streets of Kingston. I heard Mayor Delroy Williams say before the race that he wants the streets of the city to be buzzing with activity all the time, so it can become a hub of the Caribbean. I felt fast during the race and it was the best feeling to have my husband, daughter and some friends waiting at the finish line, smiling and cheering. Update: it seems I came fourth in my age group, ninth overall for females, and 78th out of 371 runners, with a time of 26:47, my fastest ever!
