5K!!!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Today was a beautiful day! The weather was emoticon and not too emoticon for the 5K! We arrived at the town green about 45 minutes before the race. They had fruit and water, and a DJ playing music. It was a great atmosphere.

Here we are before the race.


I had a good race. My back and leg were taped and that helped. I could still feel my calf issue. I did a lot of race walking and some jogging. Neither seemed to make my leg worse. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel okay.

I made a new playlist for the race with some of my favorites. Knowing that I would be finishing somewhere in the 40-45minute mark, the last song is Proud. The old Biggest Loser theme song. I rounded the corner on the last street when the song started and I began to jog. I jogged the rest of the way and over the finish line.
I don't have my time yet because I forgot to look. emoticon The racewire website is updated with the race stats yet so stay tuned for the official word.

Oh, hubby did well too. He did look at his time and it was about 31 minutes.

    You are looking good! I am so impressed that you did this 5K. I can do the distance as I am a great walker, but I do not run or jog. My 5 year old grandson beat me in a race across the back yard five years ago. I decided then that my nickname is not Flash!
