Kay, Good luck with your race day. I hope the weather is a beautiful as it was for me today.

What a great race I had. With family, and friends joining the fun, once the race began I was serious.

At a critical point in the race, around 2 miles, there was a runner with a tee on that said "don't stop running." Loved it. It gave me a boost of adrenaline. I never once felt the urge to walk. I ran an average 10:30 mile, even cadence, and I finished strong.

I knocked almost 2 mins off my PR! I think that is good for 5K! I clocked a 32:15 finish for PR and placed 3rd in my age group. That totally blows me away.

I am happy today!

I am running the Space Race on Sunday with my daughter. I will walk/run the 2K with my 8YO, as a warm up, then run the 5K. It is really a fun event to raise money for our local Challenger Learning Center at Purdue Calumet, which uses science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education to explore space science and other disciplines. It is one of my all-time favorite activities for school agers. If we get enough participants from our school, we earn a science fair. Really cool.

This is my second 5K, and third race. My goal for the race is to finish strong first, and run 5K in under 32:00 second. A hefty goal for me.
