Ran my first 5K yesterday

There was a 5K Reindeer Run/Walk yesterday in a town about 8 miles from my small town. About 8 staff members from my school signed up to do it together. We received a really cute long-sleeved dri-fit shirt and reindeer antlers to wear. The weather was GORGEOUS! About 50 degrees, sunny, very light wind.

I haven't actually been running since the summer. I do Zumba and walk a lot, but no running. My coworkers were all walking. I kept saying, "I'm walking, too." But as soon as the race started, I took off running. Ran most of the way except for about 1/3 of a mile (those darn hills!). Finished in 33:00. Not too bad for an old woman of 46! If my iPod hadn't have died at the last half mile, I probably would have done a little better. If I have to listen to myself suck wind, I tend to psyche myself out!

My ankles and knees are little mad at me today. I see ibuprofen in my future. But I had such a good time racing and plan on participating in more races.

You made a great time! Sucking wind causes me to psyche myself out too - I am much m ore of a jogger. I am slow but steady and finish.

It feels great to run the whole thing!
