My first 5k race report!

Saturday, September 28, 2013

My goals for this race was to finish, not be last, and was hoping to finish in under an hour. My best time in training had been 1:12:43, we finished in 58:27! We were not last there was 2 groups behind us when we finished. There were about 40-50 people there. Weather was great 73 degrees. There was a slight hill but nothing major. Really glad I added some more hills into my training the last week.

I'm looking forward to doing more 5ks. I have a color run scheduled for 10/13, another breast cancer walk 10/26. I hoping to add 1 more into Oct.

Here is my son and I after the race

    Congratulations! I'm sure this will be many more in your future.

I agree with SpeedyDog. In fact I saw a T-shirt at my last race that said "I'm faster than all the couch potatoes"

    Congratulations! You were not "last" by a long shot! Neither were the 2 people behind you. You beat everybody that was at home sitting on the couch! Just getting out there is a victory!
