I ran in my first 5k race this morning!
I went into it with a lot of excitement.
I had new running clothes, it was my first race, and I have been running 5 miles so running 3 sounded like a piece of chocolate cake.
This is my friend Brette and I before it started:
The race started and like a true race rookie, I bolted. I was going really fast (for me) and half-way through the first mile, I knew I had made a mistake in the beginning.
Plus, I had on that stupid fleece jacket. Mistake.
I swung it off, tied it around my waist and slowed my pace.
The first mile, as usual, went by very quickly.
I never saw the second mile mark and was convinced I was still on the first mile even when I was almost done!
I finished in 29 minutes, about 9.35 minutes a mile- my personal best!
Me and Brette at the finish line. Don't we look hot?
Recovery- juice and muffins.
I see how this race thing can become addicting!
