My First 5K on my 35th Birthday

Sunday, January 2, 2011

In an effort to make up for some lost time and very late blog postings... I ran my very first 5K race on my 35th Birthday which also just happened to be Thanksgiving day. Me and about 7000 other totally crazy people piled up in Springfield and ran in the bitter cold (and soon became a heavy misty morning!). I survived. I alternated running and walking. My guess is that I ran half and walked half in the end. Oh well. My time will get better someday. Maybe a race in the spring will prove better endurance. HA!

Great job, Michelle! I'm proud of you!

Michelle, yeah for you! I'm jealous; I've still not ran an official race, so kudos to you kid! :) (I can call you kid if you're only 35, I got you beat there. haha) Pam
