Before Vegas, I ran in my second 5K. I hadn't planned on doing this particular 5K, but it was on Sunday afternoon and it was for a great cause. Basically, it really just fit my schedule.
It was a blazing afternoon and the course wasn't clearly marked, but I just kept running. And to my surprise, I finished 1st in my age group with a time of 27:02. I could not believe it.
My main goal was to beat my previous 5K time of 28:30. And I DID IT!
I was hot. I was tired. And I had not run with this particular playlist, but I finished FIRST!
my parents and I were there supporting me
Fred, Mason and I after the race - they both finished in the top 4 in their age group
I was the person in January who could not run a full mile without stopping. This is proof that you can do anything you put your mind towards. You just have to do it!
Now, on to the next 5K or two and the 10K in May...
