40 minutes and 14 seconds! Thats a 7 minute, 19 second improvement – whoo hoo!!
The weather was slightly overcast and cool, so it made for a very pleasant run. Last year it was sunny and already creeping past 90 degrees at 9 a.m. In addition, I did NOT have the beginnings of pneumonia (like I did last year) – which made this years run much more enjoyable overall.
I am also very proud that I ran the whole 5k distance! Minus when I took a drink from my water bottle I carried with me. I’m just not coordinated enough to drink AND run at the same time. It would be a recipe for disaster (more for the person I’d likely run into).
Trying to decide what my next 5k will be. This was a “Fun Run/Walk.” I’d like to do the next one to benefit a worthwhile cause…off to research! Have a great weekend, folks!
