New Year, New Hope 5K

Saturday, January 01, 2011

I found out on Wednesday that there was a 5K being held today. I finished C25K on December 4, but couldn't do the run they had that day. I've been watching for one, but with my Christmas gain I wasn't sure this was the right one to start with. I decided to go for it and went to bed early last night instead of watching the ball drop.

I finished with a personal outside best time of 27:27. (I ran it on the treadmill in 27:12 or something once). I came in 3rd for my age group, which really surprises me!

Here are some photos:

Pre-race -- checking to see if my headphones would stay in (they didn't stay in for very long at all). Who'd have thought I'd wear spandex without a knee-length top AND allow pictures?!


And we're off! I'm thinking, "Do I stay the course or hang a right instead and head back to the van?"


The finish line!


Post-race with the kids:

My kids doing the Kiddie K (one tied for 2nd, one got 3rd, and one had excellent 20/20 hindsight!).
