I try to run two 5K's a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. Sometimes I wing it and am sore for a few days after. This past one I trained for 7 days just so I wouldn't be in pain.
I finished in 28 minutes which I was pretty pleased with.
The photographer got this photo of me and I had to share! I feel like I look like a professional! How often can I say that? Usually I'm bright red and a sweaty mess, so luckily he snapped this one only 1/2 mile in.
Runner's World next cover? I think so.
