Ringing In Spring 5k

37 degrees, cloudy, and windy this morning. Not what I expected when I signed up for a "Spring" 5k run! It warmed up to about 70 today, but this morning it was pretty cool while running.

I'm definitely not "a runner", but lately I've been trying to be more active. I signed up for this race with some girls from work to motivate myself to keep showing up at the gym! It also helps that we have a beach vacation coming up in about 2 months.

My goals for this race were:

1. Finish.
2. Finish in under 30 minutes. (My last timed 5k I ran in 30 minutes + some seconds)
3. Run the whole time.

I am so proud to say I met all three :)

My official time was 28:10, and I was 16th of 76 in my age division (107th of 755 females and 324th of 1288 runners).

I'm hoping to spend more time outside this coming week helping Jon get our raised beds set up!


  1. That's really good! You finished in the top quarter.

  2. Thanks :) I'm proud! We're hoping to run again this summer.
