This post has nothing to do with hair. My hair looked a real mess. But I have a good story to share.
All I wanted to do was finish today’s 5K in 29 minutes. I wanted to beat my last race time. I kept pace with my husband until he booked at the end and finished 12 seconds faster than me.
I was surprised to run my fastest time ever, a time that I hoped to achieve in two years, and quit trying to go any faster. I actually placed first in my age category, 26 to 39 years.
Here’s a look at my 5K history:
First ever 5K in Aug. 2012 – 34:54 (This one was in 94 degree heat).
Second 5K in Sept. 2012 – 31:something (Can’t remember because I was sick).
Third 5K in Sept. 2013 – 30:40
Fourth 5K today – 27:42
I was super excited!
