My first 5K race and my first race shirt!!
I finished in 32:45.2--6th in my age group. That's the fastest I have ever run, almost a minute per mile faster than I have run in my training runs. It was an amazing day. It started out rainy, but by the time the race started, the sun was coming out. Most of the course was under trees, however, which was good as I got so burned hanging around after the finish. I thought it was going to stay overcast, so I didn't wear a hat or sunscreen--lesson learned.
I was careful not to start out too fast and I found myself passing people later on in the race. That was kind of cool And my big goal was accomplished in my first race -- I did not walk even one step. Just imagine, 6 months ago I couldn't run for a minute straight and now I'm running for miles.
Now for Estes Park. I don't expect to do as well there because it's a bigger race and the altitude should affect me somewhat, but I am looking forward to seeing what I can do.
