Well, the 2011 Watermelon 5K Series, race two, is in the book. I felt good the entire race; much better than last race. I started out running to Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah just because I wanted to. It reminded me to smile, enjoy it, and not let my heart beat hard due to nerves. My MP3 player was acting weird and did not play what I thought I had on my playlist. For a while I was running to Bolero, which is definitely not running music, but it made me smile, too, just because it was so strange to run to it. Then it played some PodRunner music that was very appropriate. Next time I hope to have control over my music!
I didn't run quite as fast, but I'm happy with my gun time of 29:22. The first race my gun time was around 29:06, and my chip time was 28:46. Don't know my chip time yet; pictures and chip times should be posted later this afternoon. Maybe I'll have one for my blog tomorrow. I am in second place for my age group with 2 more races to go in the series. Next one is July 23rd and the final race is August 20th. I plan to run!!
