If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham
That's an amazing time! I've done a lot of 5K's in the past but always had to walk a portion of them. On Friday I did one and was able to run the whole thing. My time wasn't nearly as good as yours though. I finished in 35:42 which is my best 5K time ever.
So I've been totally intimidated by the whole race thing - all those people! But I finally signed up for one and completed it yesterday! It was a 5K (which is as far as I've been running recently) and I did so much better than I thought I would!!
I completed the race in 25:34, and even got a medal for being one of the first 250 to cross the finish line! (There were 1447 people in the race.)
I am SO proud of myself, and it has really inspired me to work on my running more. SO, I am going to get back on the B210K train (again!) to work on adding distance, as well as work on my 5K speed so I can do as well in future races without feeling like I'm about to pass out at the end. ;-)
