2nd 5K - June 14, 2013

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I ran my second 5K last night! It had been raining all week but the sun came out in the early afternoon and it was a gorgeous evening!

Before the race:

The race was held in a small seaside town near Boston and you definitely got the feeling that everyone knew each other. The race started with a long rolling hill and then down along a beach and back through town. People came out on their porches and cheered as folks ran by. The race ended on the track at the local field.

I ran it in 34:46! Almost 3 mins faster than my first race in April! My goal was to do it in 35 mins so I'm very proud of my result!

Now I have to sign up for race 3! emoticon

    Wow, I am very impressed! I still can't imagine running. I'm starting to think maybe I should give it a try someday soon.
