my 5k time was AWESOME this morning. started off with my co-runners, but after liz decided to need to slow down, i picked up and went off. after i nearly choked on my water and it dribbled down my front, i kicked it up a notch.
i hate running in the morning. unfortunately that’s when most races are held. needless to say, i was nearly croaked by the time i spied the finish line. after the gal in front of me got out the way, i booked it to the end. the timer, which is a close but not exact finish time, was closing in on 36 mins, and i wanted to beat it. i did.
later today i checked the site to see what my time was, and i did it UNDER 35!!! that is NUTS. crazytalk! that’s a pace of 11:14/mile. i have never run that! anyway, if the past two years are indicative, that will be around my average pace at the end of outdoor running season. woo!
