Happy Rest Day!

Yesterday, I ran a 5K benefitting the Interfaith Housing System here in Dodge!

As you remember from my list, “10 Things I Suck At,” I suck at 5Ks. This was no different.

I kept a super slow pace of 8:23, finishing in 26 minutes flat. About the same pace I started out at for my first 8 miles of the San Diego Marathon. Go me.

The course was the course I used for my 5K, Race for a Cure, but backwards. There was a strong South wind so guess what, the course went straight South for a mile! It felt like I was running into a brick wall. Not necessarily awesome.

There were a lot of stops to get colored up! They used colored water, so if you threw it in the dryer once you got home, it would be permanent. I had them SOAK my shirt and my white PROCompression socks! By the way, PROCompression, I need new socks…

OH. And there were these two really annoying kids that would hurry and run as fast as they could to pass me, but then they would walk. Then when I would pass them again, they would get all upset that a girl was passing them, so they would sprint past me again, and then walk… etc. It’s safe to say I killed them in the end. I sprinted past them the last half-mile. ENDURANCE FOR LIFEEEE.

Here are some pictures from the race!
