First 5k of the season

Saturday, April 20, 2013

well did my first 5k of the season... it has been over 2 years since i did one and my best time then was like 42 minutes.... today it was cold ( 25 degrees) my goal was come in somwhere between 35 and 40 minutes.... well I surpassed that.... I was 34:40.... i was so shocked and so could not believe that I did.... my best on treadmill was 35:45.... then when they were giving out the awards... they called my name for 2nd place in my age group.... was I ever shocked then.....

I am planning to do 8 more this season and 2 mud obstacle 5k's ... my goal is only to beat my previous time.... but I think I hit a pretty high standard for that today... lol

    Good Job!

Where do you live that it is 26 degrees. That's pretty cold.
