POW Memorial 5K Recap


I didn't have any intentions on running in this event. But since we got back in town the night before and I was in desperate need of a good workout, I went ahead and set my alarm for the next morning to register for the race. It would be nice to set a new PR in the 5K but I haven't been running lately so I knew a PR wasn't likely going to happen. I went out there and did my thing though. I did pretty amazing considering that I've been eating nothing but fast food for the past two weeks and haven't been running. 

5K Time: 25:54.43

Mile 1: 8 Min Mile I tried my best to start with a slow pace. 

Mile 2: 8:14 Min Mile Started to pick up the pace a little bit but then I realized, omg I am tired as heck, I can't believe I am still running!!

Mile 3: 8:57 Min Mile Hill!! I've run up this hill plenty of times with no problems but this time was a little different and that hill kicked my ass! Once I got to the top I took a walking break, started running again, then took two more (quick) walking breaks. I tried to pick up the pace, but I was just too tired so I stuck with a pace I felt comfortable running. When I came across that finish line all I could think of was "Thank goodness the race is OVER!!"
