Official Race Results

Well on Friday afternoon I decided to run in a 5k race. I figure I give it a try and see where I was physically. So far I hadn't run 3.1 miles at a time so I was a bit nervous about the whole thing. I started near the front and was pass by like seventy people. It was very defeating to be pass by so many on your very first race. Also I had no idea how long it was going to take so I was saving up my energy so I wouldn't stop. In the end I placed 92nd and ran it in 27 minutes. My goal was to run the whole thing without stopping and that is what I did. Next time I'll start in the back so I can pass some people and build some confidence. But really not bad for a first race with only a month of running under my belt.
