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.
