I ran in my third 5k on Thanksgiving Day.
My official chip time was 30:21 which is slightly better than the other two I've completed. I guess I'm a little annoyed that I'm not getting any fast but at the same time, I'm not training to get faster. And there were hills on this course. Lots of hills.
So I've got something to work on before my next 5k...or dare I say it 10k. I think Jennifer and I have decided we would like to try something a little longer next time.
You've got to have goals - and a great friend to run with doesn't hurt either.
Here we are before the race...and the hills.

And here is the picture Dan took of me after crossing the finish line. I didn't see him, so no smile. Plus I'm gasping for air. This is pretty much what I looked like throughout the entire race. Did I mention there were hills? Lots of hills.
