I did it! Finally! I broke the 25 minute mark. I have obtained a goal that I’ve been wanting for over a year. I cannot begin to express how happy and overwhelmed I am with it. The confidence boost in my running is amazing. I wasn’t sure how the race would turn out since I have been doing my runs on the treadmill while DD napped. Road running and treadmill running are different, both have their benefits, but when it comes to racing… road running prepares you the best.
The other great thing about this race is that it was in our neighborhood and all the money went to our local animal shelter. As animal lovers, we were happy to help. DH walked with DD for race. I will say I love the fact that DH, DD and I did something together, but not really. After I finished, I went to find my family and finish their race with them.
The race was small but well organized and we will do it again next year. Hopefully, I will beat my time…. oh and that time was 24:33. Yes, that’s over 30 secs faster than my best 5k!
