I Beat Last Year's Time!!

Sunday, April 27, 2014

Today was the 5K race in my town. I really didn't want to go. Mostly because so much is going on in my life that I can't get out of my own way sometimes. Hubby said "You are not a quitter, " and suggested that we dedicate the race to our parents.

So that's what we did. We marked their initials on our bibs and hit the road.
The weather here was raw and damp with showers. Yucky, in other words! I wore two shirts and a hoodie and wished I had brought gloves. About halfway through I warmed up!

I did pretty well and bested last year's time! I walked and jogged the route.
My pace was 13:48 and my time 42: 54, which is almost a minute less than last year so I am emoticon

Here I am coming to the finish line
