Just completed my first 5k! It was the City 2 City 5k in Cleveland Ohio. I signed up for it on a whim, although I've been training for a 5k for months- but just heard about this one last week. The route is in my neighborhood so I thought I'd have a "home field advantage " as I run that course several times a week. The gun time said 31:00 but my gps said 30:35. I learned a ton and am looking forward to another race. I felt really good the entire time, yet clocked my fastest mile ever in mile 2 ( 8:34). I could have pushed harder and been a little more uncomfortable. I also learned that I weave to much and added .2 miles onto my race( per the gps).
