In the past few weeks, I've been able in training to get my 5K time under 30 minutes, but today was the big day -- my first official, chipped 5K race! And to add a little intrigue to this race, it was in Tucson, AZ, which is 1/2 mile above sea level (where I live on the east coast, we are AT sea level!).
In spite of the altitude challenge, I was able to officially post my first sub-30 minute 5K -- 29:39!!
I did have to do a few fast walks during the race to catch my breath, but overall it was a very successful race! Hopefully, I'll be back here next year and lowering that time!
