Spring Fever 5K
Please note that today is April 13th. The name of the race we did today is called Spring Fever Fun Run. Too bad spring is nowhere in sight here in MN :( As my sister-in-law Mary Ann said, "it's like a sick joke."
I was pretty pleased with today's race. My goal was to break 24 minutes. I was on target to do so until we reached the last leg of the race... you know, the part where we had to run around the SNOW COVERED track. While I wanted to push through to get my goal, I decided that my body and my life are more important. To those of you who know me and my competitive spirit well, it appears perhaps I am getting more mature :)Plus, even with the major slow down (according to my watch, I paced the last lap over a minute slower than the rest of my run), I still had a personal best. When I plugged my watch into my computer after the race, the last picture above popped up from NIKE. Gotta love their affirmations.
I also won my age group for the second year in a row...only because my super fast friend who normally wins is pregnant, but hey, I'll take it :)
