I surprised myself...

Saturday, May 12, 2012

I went to a benefit charity 5k run today and I crossed the finish line at 31:54. emoticon The race was not chipped timed, but I was so happy to know that I can finish a 5k in less than 33 minutes. Now If i can shave a minute or two off the race I am going to run next week.


My daughter ran the race also and she finished at 42:05. My granddaughter asked her if she won and my daughter said "No, way!" I corrected her and said, "Yes, you did because you crossed the finish line."

    Great job! I just did my first half marathon today. After I recover my main will be to do a 5K in sub 30 but my PB is 33. So you've inspired me! Thank you, and have a great race.
