Participated in a 5K run/walk today.

Saturday, March 23, 2013

The nursing students at the local university (Southern Utah University) sponsored a run/walk today. It was called the St. Patty's Day recovery fun run. it was a fundraiser for their service missions to Mexico. It was the first official 5K I have ever entered, except for a church sponsored on last year that was a bit disorganized. I got 44:47, which I felt pretty good about since I haven't been training very well this winter. It was about 2 minutes off my personal best. I would like to shave 5-19 minutes off of that by the end of the summer.

It was fun, although I did come in dead last. It was fun to have people cheering and encouraging me.

    Great job!! I don't think the 44:47 time is bad for this time of the year. Look at the good side and figure that you can only improve, right?

    AWESOME!!

When I trained for my first 5K by doing a 6 week training program, I was able to finish in 45 minutes. I think that 44 is GREAT!!
