1st 5K in the books..A beauty day..Pretty good run overall

Sunday, September 19, 2010

I promised my Spark friends that I would update and provide some pics..
I managed to run the full 5K distance ( Garmin says 5.2 ;-)) in 34 minutes..Certainly not a record however given the issue with my muscle spasm, I think it was just fine.
The day was beautiful..About 12C..Sunny, not a cloud in the sky. About 300 hundred walkers and runners showed up to participate...The run was the 30th anniversary run of Terry Fox marathon of hope..A well known story to any fellow Canadians ;-)
Here are some pics...Before I started..during.then just after finish..
Please note..the wet around my neck is me spilling water.. emoticon
Thanks for all support my friends...
To any who may read this, that are just starting to run...Stick with it! You will get there..It's an amazing feeling

Just before starting...

Eyes on that finish Line!! ( thanks Bubble J ;-)

All done..( Just coming out of my "muscle man" pose emoticon
