This morning was the 27th running of our local Women's Distance Festival 5K. For me, it was probably about the 4th or 5th time that I've done it. I love this event because it's so supportive and there are always several first timers running it.
I haven't been running very much lately and didn't expect to have a particularly good race, but I figured I could probably finish in the 29-30min range.
As it turned out, my finish time turned out to be 28:30, and I was pleased with that.
Love the race swag too. They gave us a women's technical t-shirt and a small bag with reflection on it. At the finish, we received a carnation and some chocolates.
I didn't stick around too long after the finish; I wanted to get home so I could get cleaned up and make it to church (which I did). They have't posted the official results yet, so I'm not sure of my exact age group placing. I'll be interested in that detail.
Update: Official results are now posted. I was 8 of 17 in my age group, 52 of 163 overall.
Next up for me is another 5K in a few weeks. And then the women's triathlon that I haven't been training much for due to my shoulder. It's going to be an adventure, if nothing else...
