its hard to compete with father time! So, finally, I got my first age group award, here is a picture of it below:
Gleaming with pride over our run today, we both got some random dude to take our picture with these cheesy medals on but hey, I will take it anyday. We were both pumped to get a age group place and actually made the day.
Overall, I was sad I didn't break 20 minutes but this is actually only my 3rd 5k race run at my speed since I began running last year. All the other races had been 10ks, 1/2 marathons, 20ks, and a marathon. The other 5k's were pacing the boys which is around 10 minute miles. If we do this next year, I will want to go sub 20 for sure. I am going to have to start doing track and speed work if I am going to start doing faster mile times.
