19:36 :)

This will have to be short, but I did decide to go ahead and run that 5k today (and my official time was 19:36). I'm glad that I ran. I know the turkey trot course is .1 long, which will make it harder to break 20.

To be honest, I didn't want to run. It was right in the middle of the day, we had lots of chores to do, and everyone is still recovering. But Thursday I did another mile time trial. This time I clocked 5:43, which made me think that I should put in the effort to race.

Again, I'm happy that I did. Overall, I ran a smart race. My first mile was 6:16, and from there I just did my best to hang on. I was the first female finisher, which was cool (although it really just points out that the race wasn't very competitive).

The only downside is that my asthma has been acting up since the race, but that's okay. I haven't run that fast in almost a decade...

I hope everyone else had a good running weekend too!

Hurray! Congrats! Awesome job! Thrilled for you, and so happy you ran! Race report?
I am so excited to see what you can do at the half marathon distance this winter! Sub 1:30 for sure:)

I totally beg to differ with "the race wasn't very competitive". How about you just ran a smokin' fast 1st place WORTHY 5K. This is really an awesome time! I can't dream of this pace! Congrats!!

And besides this wicked 5K, a 5:43 mile in training!!! AHHH! Great job.

What an awesome time! Not very many women can run a 5K that fast, you totally deserved 1st place. Amazing!

PS- Your eyes are really pretty.

Super Job!! That is awesome..the 5k and the time trial both are AMAZING. So glad after the junk from a few weeks ago you were able to get in another race.
NICE!!
