I'm doing a series of 5k runs this year sponsored by ORRC. Over the winter I had some foot troubles and so laid off the running for a few months. So I wasn't sure if I was going to be a runner or a walker by the time the first race rolled around. It turns out I mostly ran, walked a little.
Matt helped transport the food, so got a fresh cinnamon roll in exchange.
Here you can see them icing the rolls.
We took a pre-race walk and snapped a few pictures of Hagg Lake.
I'm waiting for the race to begin.
It was a small race, which I liked a lot. They didn't even have music playing at the beginning.
And I'm off!
The technology that brings us our time.
And I'm back! (It was an out-and-back course)
Finishing under 40 minutes!
They gave us socks, which I thought was awesome.
I was overly enamored with this very wide walking strip in the middle of the parking lot.
Officially I finished in 38:45 with an average pace of 12:30 (which I'm thrilled about.) I finished 34 overall, and fourth in my age bracket. The next race is on June 21.
