I was all smiles at the start (fake it till you make it?), but boy was that one of the toughest 5Ks I've ever run!
Several reasons I'm sure of: 1) I lovehate my treadmill. 2) All.Those.Christmas.Cookies. 3) its been a solid week since I've run. Or even walked that much, unless you count my Christmas Eve shopping trip. 4) I didn't much feel like doing it, so good thing I forked over the money and felt forced to do it.
So in that regards it was pretty successful
That WAS my whole purpose for challenging myself to sign up for at least one race a month all year. So I would do it. I never said I'd like it ;) That said: I've never regretted a run or a race no matter how bad. I always always always regret not running. So with that, I am proud of my worst 5k time in recent memory.
|LOL. Maybe i can blame some of my difficulties on the fact that I wore two different shoes?!|
