413th Place Feels Like 1st Place to Me!
I ran my first race ever yesterday, the Pikesville 5K. I finished in 37 minutes 42 seconds, meeting my goal of maintaining a less than 12 minute mile time over the entire race. I wasn't running this race to win but my prediction of finishing the race in about 400th place during the pre-race interview (conducted by Wyn) was almost spot on.
It feels so good to set your mind to something, train for it, and then accomplish it. I love running! In August I start training for a 10K held at the end of November. In the meantime I am going to work independently at both increasing my speed and distance. I hope the weather here in Baltimore cooperates a bit because running when it is 100 degrees really isn't my thing.
