Racing Results!

Weeeeellllllll......Not EXACTLY the result I was looking for, but I still set a new personal best in a race. I started near the back (so I wouldn't get run over) but that may have been a mistake. I started off slower than I intended because we were kind of crunched, and it was hard to pass at first. I felt really good the entire race, and I didn't have to stop and walk at all. I ran really hard at the end and managed to cross the finish line without vomiting. Although I did gag 3 times. :) But....I didn't make it under 30 minutes.

My official time was 31:15, with a pace of 10:04. I finished 192/480 overall; 92/317 total women; and 16/52 women in my age division. Very happy with those results!!

There's another 5K next Monday on Labor Day, but I haven't decided if I will enter. I'm going to check it out though. :)

GOOD JOB! I had to walk twice. Only for about 10 seconds each time but I felt like my lungs were going to burst so I stopped. So I commend you for NOT STOPPING! Good job on the time as well.

Yes, starting at the back sucks!

I hope you do the labor day one. I am going to active.com now to look for another 5k.

Krissa - The registration for the Labor Day race was closed, but I did sign up for one later in September! :)
