Well I just completed another 5K. Let me tell you it was cold. Only 44 degrees out this morning. It took a whole mile for me to get warmed up. 1.5 miles for me to shed the jacket. The briskness of the air reminded me that if I want to continue running into the colder weather I need to invest in some clothes. Lees had their big sale so I did get me a real nice UA jacket that I can run in once it gets even chillier. Tried some pants they were a no go.
Anyway back to today's run. I am so proud that the only time I stopped to walk was at the water station. I felt so strong during the run. The last 1/2 mile I really pushed it. I could see the timer from a distance and really pushed it so I could make it under my goal. When I crossed it said 33:54. Thats 1 min and 20 seconds better then my last time. I know I can continue to shave time off as I continue training.
While at the event I grabbed another flyer for the Great Pumpkin 5K in 2 weeks. This one I will run by myself. Boomer gonna run the Halloween one with me on 27th. I know I said I wanted to run 3 this fall, but I think Im hooked. Gonna do these 2 plus the Turkey Trot and Gingerbread 5k. Can't wait.
