I finished the race in 43:50.
The first mile was the hardest. We ran once around the track and then through the neighborhood. Of course, I ran the first mile way too fast for my pace, and when we hit the first hill, I had to stop and walk. I ran/walked the rest of the course.
Paul was great and stayed with me the whole time. He can do this run in his sleep, and it was his first race in the master's group, and he stuck with me. He was great company. When I stopped to walk, I kept apologizing to him, and I almost wonder if I was apologizing to myself as well, because I should of kept going.
We had a great group, and everyone had great times.
Jen even got first place in her division. She was really shocked, because it was her first ever 5K and the third time she has EVER run. She rocked!
I have learned a lot from this first 5K, and I promised myself that I will just get better and do better.
