New PR!

For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that my last race was an absolute disaster. It was cold and snowy, the course was extremely difficult, and I had a horrible attitude. When I crossed the finish line at 39:00, I wanted to burst into tears.

This morning's race played out a little differently.

As in, it was amazing.

It was sunny (although still kind of chilly), I was excited and the crowds (4000 runners!) got me stoked and ready to run. I crushed my old PR, set at the Traverse City Turkey Trot in November, of 35:08 and finished today's 5K in 32:39.

The best part of the race was that I ran the entire thing with my friend Babs (her real name is Sarah). I've never ran with another person before because I've never been in good enough shape to keep up with any of my friends. It was awesome.

Eric and Aimee set some new PRs as well; Eric finished with an amazing time of 26:50 and Aimee whooped all of our butts finishing in just over 23 minutes.

Me, Babs, Aimee and Eric

Goal for my next 5K is 32:00. Think I can do it? I do :)

Alright, there's some leftover alfredo calling my name so I'm off. Have a great afternoon everyone!
