Rockin' another 5K... this time will fellow SParkers!!

Saturday, May 04, 2013

This morning was the Cinco de Mayo 5K in Jeff City MO! I was there with 3 other SParkers and we all did great! Walking, jogging, running -- it didn't matter, we showed up and moved it! It was great to meet BECCAZEN7, GOPINTOS & REDDEVILAPRIL.

After the even, we all went and had a mini-potluck rally and chatted and had a really nice time with tons of amazing food... healthy food. I was so stuffed, but my tracker doesn't look like a train wreck!!

I was 5 seconds off my personal best from a few weeks ago, but considering I have been sick 2 of the past 3 weeks and just feeling exhausted and busy, I am really not complaining. I finished and walked less than I did on the previous 5K. I am enjoying the 5Ks as a test of the treadmill training that I'm doing and as a way of learning better how to pace myself on hills and the like.

I was also flashing back to my first 5K and thinking that I was going to die. I like cheering for others on their races, and clapping lots.... except for when I burst a blood vessel in my thumb... ouch.

Oh well, on to the next challenge, the Go Girl Run in 3 weeks!
