Just finished another 5K in Essex this past weekend. Money raised helped support a local basketball team. I didn’t train nearly enough but I still managed to do well. I completed the 5K in 30:38. Not too bad considering the sizes of the hills and that the entire course was all hills. The weather was also horrible it rained right up until the last minute. It made the air muggy and the air felt heavy. I got a real good sweat out of this one. I had a great cheering group and also ran with some of my colleagues. It felt awesome to get out and run again.
I always feel great after a run. I love that my family comes and cheers me on no matter how big or how small the race is. I love coming in faster than people expect me to. Nothing is better than waking up sore the next day.
I am hoping to find another 5K race to compete in again soon. I guess I better start looking for more. Until then I will just keep on running one day at time. Enjoying a new passion of mine!
