I ran the Raggedy Ann 5K this morning. It was a very chilly 45 degrees. I think that's why I look kind of weird and uncomfortable in the photo below (that's Ashley next to me).
I haven't run 5K since September. My goal, as always, was to run without stopping. I'm going to say that I achieved this goal, even though I did stop once. But that was just because my shoe came untied. Even then, I briefly considered just going on. But I still had more than a mile to go at that point, so I stopped. But other than that, it felt like a good run. I kept replaying Jay-Z's "Run This Town" for the last half-mile -- I think that might be my favorite song to run to. Oh, and I completely lost my focus on the last tenth of a mile because I rounded the corner to see Mike with the flip camera in one hand, and the iPhone in the other. Funny sight. :)
I finished at 38:08 (according to the time Mike was keeping). But it still felt like one of the better 5Ks I've run, despite this being my slowest time. I really hadn't put much time into training.
Oh, and I thiink I'll be running my 10K in July. But for now, I'm very tired and sore, and I need to sleep. Goodnight, all!
