I did it! I was nervous, but I persevered!
Several runners were using ipods, iphones, etc. I could have used mine... But, it was interesting to hear my breathing, being more attentive to my foot - which didn't hurt at all, hearing runner's conversations, and mother nature. We were running around a charming, little, waterfront town with marinas, and historic houses. Today is their town celebration, so quite a lot of the residents were out on their sidewalks cheering us on.
This is me coming into the finish line!!
My time on the clock was 56.07 The person in charge couldn't get the chip readings and is going to work on it and then post the "real" times. I wanted to run it under an hour so I am happy. I definitely run faster with my music and will use my ipod during the relay two weeks from today. I think I am also going to run one more 5k next weekend for speed in preparation for the relay.
I would love to hit 55 mins or under!!
