|Clearly, this is my PRE-race picture...I look happy & energized!|
For whatever reason, I was feeling a bit anxious about it before hand...just wanted to "get it over with"...
I arrived about 45 minutes pre-race time. Got my awesome t-shirt (which will become part of my running shirt quilt someday) and then hung around and did some stretching.
The race started at 9:33am.
I was feeling pretty good, despite the nerves, but the 4:1 intervals were not as easy for me as they have been on the treadmill.
|He came to cheer me on!|
Going into yesterday's race, along with the nerves, I felt positive and that with all the hard work I had put in over the summer, that this 5k should be cake, or at least as easy as the prior one. Both were fairly flat courses.
|The race just started...feeling good!!|
|And here I am...barely alive as I cross the finish line. I was feeling rough by this point. :(|
|I do like this image however...10:49 mile. Yay!|
