At the last 5k, I set a PR of 26:05, my goal for this race was to beat that. When the horn sounded I took off. What I like about running in the cold is that my legs just feel numb and I can move faster. It also seems easier to control my breathing. By the time I got to the one mile mark my time was 7:23..WHAT!! I was flying! Way faster than I intended to (another reason I am getting a Garmin)! So I slowed down and by the 2nd mile was at a pretty steady 8 min mile pace. The 3rd mile I slowed down more than I would have liked to. I finished in 25:58 which is a new PR, however, I am still a little disappointed that I didn't push it a little harder. I will be racing again in 2 weeks in the Rudolph Run 5k in Huntsville, AL. My goal is to finish under 25mins.
Elaine and Tami finished in great times and I am so proud of them! They are excited to set new PR's in the next race! I am pretty sure they have been bitten by the running bug!!
My sweet boys, Ty and Sebastian ran the Jingle Bell 1 mile. They had a great time and were more excited about the hot cider and cookies after the race! Sebastian won a first place medal for his age group 5 and under ( he was the only one in that category..but shhhhhhhh he doesn't know that!) Mommy is so proud of both her running boys! They are truly fit for the King!!
Sebastian's favorite part of the race....Food!!
Team Fit for the King!
