Y Run for Kids 5K

I know I said I wasn't going to post, and I'm supposed to be helping my husband clean the spare room, but I'm so excited I just had to share! I ran the 5K in 34:00 by my watch. That's a 10:57 pace, which is a great time for me. I walked twice, skipping my last one because I was close to the finish, and I ran steadily up the hills. Okay, okay, my heart rate was pretty bad - 163 average and 178 max (on the steepest hill), but I felt great, absolutely great. And I was having a conversation with Barb the whole way. And I beat Rob. (He was walking with his family, I just put that in to bug him.) Cool, huh?

woo hoo, you beat Rob! :)

Great job, I knew your "slow" pace wouldn't be much off from mine!

Absolutely COOL!!! And it's a great time for anybody, forget the woman who just had some insides removed! Just imagine how you beat Rob when he actually runs this thing in a near future:)

You beat Rob?! Cool!

Congratulations on the 5k, and you beat Rob fair and square. Don't listen to any excuses he might come up with - he's constantly walking during his races, just read his latest race report!
