ANNUAL RUN FOR THE CHILDREN 5K and FUN RUN
The morning started and ended like this...
I was very unsure about doing this race. I hate running in the rain!
Or so I thought...
It actually wasn't that bad! It was kinda fun, but I was sure my time would suck. I mean, here I am running in my first race since October? In the rain? This is going to go down as one of my worst times for a 5K, for sure. However...
I ran it in 34:30! That is actually MY BEST TIME SO FAR FOR A 5K!
(cue happy dance)
I even finished 6 out of 10 in my age group! I wasn't last!!!
(I'll save you from another happy dance.)
The one thing that did suck about the race was the situation with the shirts. When I got there, they only had larges. Yes, I had pre-registered, so yes, they should have had a shirt for me. They screwed up. You just DON'T screw up on a runner's t-shirt. LOL ;-) Anyway, they gave me that large and a small from last year, so I ended up with two shirts. It was for a good cause, and my running time was great, so I'll forgive them. :-)
So far, a great start to the running season! Aside from this cough I now have from running in the rain and 40 degree weather, I have a great sense of accomplishment. And sorry for sounding like a credit card commercial but... that is priceless!
Today's forget-me-not: Don't back down from a challenge - run with it! (pun intended)
