After Thursday's tough workout my legs were still screaming at me (although a little quieter now), luckily the warm up helped but I knew this combined with my lack of speedwork was not the ideal picture for a 5K, my goal was a better time then I ran at this race 5 years ago (22:40) but Ideally a sub 20.
Soon after I see Matt coming down the road and he crosses for a time of 24:30 48th overall finish. We give O the high fives she's been waiting for and watch the rest of the race as we wait for her race to start.
The kids ran a 1/4 mile race, which I think she doubled in warm up! She ran so much waiting for things to start that she was tired before her race began. But she was thrilled out there running and is now asking for the next race. My little runner.
My 1st place AG finish was good for a medal and a gift certificate to a local running store, yay! Guess it turned out to be a free race for me. I love small local races and need to look for more. I learned I need to be doing more speedwork and my leg is ready.
