Just like any other 5K that I've run, I go in never thinking that I am running a race. I'm there just to run. I love the feeling of exhilaration after the run that it doesn't matter what time I finish. Oh, don't get me wrong. For a split second I would think that I should run faster to beat my previous 5k finish times but somehow that never works! I did finish under my time last year by a mere seconds but it is enough for me. I finished at 37:34, a decent 12:06 pace.
Megan, Chase and Carson earned medals in their respective age groups! Rita and Gloria also finished with good time finishes! I appreciate their running with me to celebrate my birthday. Till next year, ladies, I hope.
Looking forward to Race #4; the ReRun 5K on Saturday!
