Halloween morning was a cold one – I laid in bed thinking “it’s waaaay too cold to get up and run – I’d rather sleep.”
But a little voice inside me said “get up and just do it!”
So I scrounged up all of the non-cotton running attire I have and got ready for my first 5k as an adult.
The last time I ran a 5k was in high school – I actually ran a lot of them, since I ran cross country my senior year.
I felt I would be somewhere around a 12-minute mile. I was correct.
Without officially training for the 5k, I was happy to run most of it and finish with a 12-minute mile pace.
For you math majors, yes that’s a lousy time, but I don’t care: I had to start somewhere.
