A race report!

What's that you say, a race report! Surely not. Yep, I ran an actual race, for the first time since my half marathon last Oct. Which I hardly raced considering I was 4 months pregnant. I went home to Danville, KY and ran a 5K that went along with a craft festival they have every year. I must say I really wasn't looking forward to it. I'm slow and I haven't ran a 5K in well over a year and the race was at 5 pm in a much more humid climate. So, I had a list of reasons why I was going to suck, lol, but I didn't suck too badly. I did it in 27 and change and considering my best 5K ever was 25:13 I wasn't too far off. I feel like I ran as fast as I could, the finish was uphill and I lost a little steam. Now I want to do another one b/c I really feel like I could do 25ish if it had been a morning race and I had about 5 more lbs off. I think I will run a local 5K in Oct, the Pigskin Classic. Look out. Next up is the Akron half marathon this Sat. Wish me luck!

Great job. And a 5K that starts at 5? I shudder to think how much slower I'd be in an afternoon 5k.
