Around the World in 5K (Part 2)

I am just home from the 5K & the Folk Fair I mentioned back in October. It was a great run! Cold temps, rain/sleet/flurries had been forecasted for the day, but it turned out to be a nice day for a run. Temps were right around 40 when the 5K got under way, the sun was out, and the winds were light.

I only slowed to a quick walk pace twice. I estimate I walked a total of 35-35 steps to bring my heart rate down and catch my breath a bit. My time was 32:48 (Erin beat me by one second!). That is an HUGE improvement from the 43:40 in the Danskin.

My goal is to be able to run a 5k in under 30 by the 2008 Danskin! I'm taking a little time off to let my weary body rest, but I will be running again soon.
