Ran my first 5K

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Okay, I ran my first 5K on Saturday, October 13 and it was an exhilarating experience. What a rush! I ran my usual 11 minutes per mile and I felt strong and hungry for more. I could have ran faster but being my first time, I was concerned with running out of steam too soon. I found out within other things, that I am not the slowest runner. There were 515 people faster than me and 204 slower. I was not the last person at the finish line! Now, it is time to move on and to keep running. I will be registering for a 5 miles race on November 22, 2007 in a town nearby. I already run 5 miles, I just to keep at it to increase my endurance and running time.

Wish me luck and lot of running!

    Nice work on your first 5K! It's addicting, isn't it? How did you do on your Thanksgiving race? Planning any more? I've been sidetracked by an injured husband and a new job most of this fall, so I'm looking forward to 2008 more than ever. I may go to Salt Lake City, Utah for a distance run in September. We'll see. Congrats again! Good luck on more - trust me, once you start, you'll always be looking for the next race. :)
