Last weekend my hubby and I participated in our first ever 5k race, and the whole experience was amazing.
The morning of the race the weather was horrible! Pouring rain! ! ! I have never run in the rain, sprinkles yes but not full blown rain. On the way to the race check in we discussed my goal for a finishing time. Given the weather conditions I knew better than to expect my training time of 34 min so I added ten min and wished to finish under 44. My official finishing place was 241 out of over 600 and my time was 42:11. Not bad with all that was going against me that day. I'll do better on the next one. I have a PR that I could beat walking :-)
