I ran in the McKenzie 5K on Nov. 21.
To prep for the race, I ran my usual and instead of a long run Friday I did a fast mile with the pup.
The race started a little later than I would’ve liked, but the overcast day made for a great run.
I ran with a couple friends, had to leave the pup home, and I finished with one of my best times, 31 minutes even.
I believe I could’ve had a better time if I didn’t have to dodge many people as I did or stop for a little water. I should’ve drank more water in the morning, but didn’t realize the race would’ve started so late.
However, I pushed myself, sprinted at the end and felt great. I’m not too sore and I feel awesome.
