I ran another 5K today. I was by myself again, so it was pretty boring and awkward before and after with no one to talk to. I’m not really a fan of that aspect of races! It wasn’t my best race, but I was still pleased with my time of 29:58.68 because I was still under 30 minutes! I finished 5th of out 8 in my age group.
On a side note, if you ever participate in a race, don’t EVER stop just as you cross the finish line because you might get run over. When I see the finish line, I take off in a full sprint, especially if I’m close to the time I’m trying to hit. I can’t exactly put on the brakes if someone stops in front of me. This guy almost ate pavement. 😀
