This morning I ran my 2nd 5k race with my friend AJ… it was awesome! We actually ran most of it, which was fantastic. There were a couple times where I was feeling like “why am I doing this again?!” But I pushed through and finished in 41 minutes and 39 seconds. That’s 13 minutes and 27 seconds per mile – no too shabby.
A couple things to note…
- For some reason the minute I crossed the finish line and stopped I almost threw up. Thankfully I did not. Once I started moving again I was fine.
- Bananas taste SO FREAKING GOOD after a run. So much better than at any other time. So good.
- In addition to the 5k run we also walked an additional mile (to and from the walk location).
- About 1/2 way home from the walk I REALLY wanted a cupcake. I ended up swinging by the local farmers market and guess what I found? Cupcakes! I bought some but actually haven’t eaten them yet.
3 weeks from tomorrow is the Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon and I’l slightly terrified. My fellow runner friends that have done a 1/2 marathon before have been giving me helpful hints and reassuring me that I can do it, which I really appreciate. So we shall see… 22 days and counting!
