My 2nd 5K Race

Sunday, September 30, 2012

Just before the race began - better weather & not as nervous.

There's my time! Better than last week's 33.31! YAY!

Good Evening, Fellow Sparkies!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend with your families & friends. I can't believe tomorrow is already OCTOBER! Well, this weekend for me was exciting - as I completed another 5K! It was a beautiful, crisp morning. I ran with my sister, who is a life-long runner, & her husband with their toddler in a jog stroller.

This time around, I wasn't as nervous as last week. It helped that my DH, DD, my sister & her family were there, too. I wasn't over dressed like last weekend. It was a curvy course & I started off with a swift pace. Boy by the end of the course, it was such a boost to see the people's signs saying - "YOU'RE ALMOST DONE!" I picked up my pace & I beat my time by 19 seconds... made it just under 32 minutes & change. What a feeling to see my DH & DD waiting for me at the finish line! Woo-hoo!

Well, my husband has been inspired to start running again. We're signing up for a "Tombstone" 5K coming up in 3 weeks. It'll be at a cemetery in our neighborhood. DD doesn't want to join us this time because she said it was too creepy. Anyway, we're going to have to think of some lightweight costumes to wear for it. :))

Many thanks again for your likes, comments & inspiring posts! It always keeps me hopeful & motivated! Have a wonderful start to the new month. Good night & sleep tight.
