Well, it wasn’t on St. Patrick’s day, but the Sunday before. 🙂
It was a bit chilly at the start, but it wasn’t rainy, YAY!! I did have my fingertipless gloves and ear warmer headband. They came off between miles 1 & 2. I decided to NOT listen to my iPod, I ended up turning it off sometime during the race anyway. I just didn’t want to deal with it this time.
The first mile I ran with my sister. Sometime between the 1st & 2nd mile, I started to pull away from her. I was feeling pretty good. 🙂 Rounding the final corner, I texted (yes, I run with my phone and yes, I texted my Mom while I was running) that I was almost there. She didn’t get it and she didn’t see me finish. I was too fast. 🙂
My official time: 32:45.5
I want to run a sub 30 5K. I should be able to do it! I also have a 10K planned in May and I’m looking forward to it.
