The 5k last night may be my new favorite. I can't wait to run it next year!
|K and I pre-race|
Not to mention that as of 2pm people had already chained their chairs to the gutter to reserve spots for the 7pm parade.
It was extremely windy and in the high 50s for the race, so I dressed in long sleeves and wore my compression socks. (I wore them all day because I had run in the morning too, and after taking time off I wanted to be sure I recovered as quickly as possible.) I was a little warm at times when the buildings blocked the wind, but for the most part I was happy to have the layers.
|New calf sleeves...love them!|
|Start line. Check out that crowd...and the trees! Super-windy!|
|Running down 41 in the second km.|
|Back to the Future!|
My official stats were:
19/60 female AG, 239/631 female over all, 705/1337 over all.
This was a great experience and confirmed that my priorities are back in order and I'm ready to get back into the races I really enjoy, instead of building up distance just for the bling. My head feels like it's in the right place. My excitement and happiness during this race really proved that to me. I can hardly wait for next month's races!
