Embrace it, Carolyn! I did the same thing this past fall, took it as a benchmark, and used it to race against myself. It worked! All the best in all your future runs!

"When there's something you want fight for it. Don't give up-no matter how hopeless it seems, even when you've lost hope, cause years from now you're gonna look back and wish you gave it one more shot cause the best things in life don't come easy."

That's great news! Congrats! I just did the last day of my 5K Walk/Jog 5 week training program, which I did as a virtual 5K, in 48:43. I would love to get to your time soon, but I will be there eventually.

This past Saturday I ran in a 5K race that I did last year (it was my first ever 5K back then). I ended up finishing 3rd in my age group!! My time wasn't even as good as my last 5K, but 31:51 was good enough to place :)
