I survived another 5K race today. That is a miracle in itself.
Strangely enough, I beat my last 5K race time by more than 3.5 minutes, yet not sure how I really did that because this route was SO much harder than the last. Hard to believe that only 3 wks of training between races made that much difference. Anyway, they also said this course was "flat & fast"...well, I want to know what they were smoking when they made that assessment because it was constant up and down - albeit slight/small hills, but still!! I even felt a WHOLE LOT worse as I finished, like if there hadn't been a few hundred people around, I would have just fallen onto the ground and lay there indefinitely...
Here I am just starting out -hence the smile- I had yet to realize the torture I was about to go through. (click on the pictures to enlarge)
And this one was taken as I approached the finish line, thinking "why did I ever think this was a good idea?"Here's the proof of my finish time...you can see me in my grey shirt just to the right of the lady.
