Erin, Vera, and I participated in the PSU Autism Speaks event yesterday. I had not run in a long time (except a slow 2 miler with the dog through the new property a couple days ago). I was able to pull off a 3rd place finish in an admittedly not-very-competitive race. My time was 19:25. This was a nice way to finish at the last race of my 25-29 age group career.
Vera did great. She managed not to trip anyone (she did the walk with Erin) and she got a few things marked off her socialization checklist. For instance, she met a baby in a stroller and she was around some people in uniform, and she saw a police car with flashing lights and a siren blast.
