2014 TC 5K

Saturday, October 04, 2014

I didn't sleep very well last night wondering what today would bring and if I would be able to run in the cold, would it snow, rain, wind blowing like crazy????
Well it was cold, 40 degrees and the wind was blowing a bit, but I layered and wore a jacket and stayed warm during the run but since you have to park and get there a little early, the waiting was a bit cool. We had about an hour to wait and we found the big tent where they had tables and games for kids and warmth best of all. We went to line up at about 20 minutes before the start of the race.
Here are a few pics before and after the race.

at home getting ready.

Choosing to wear layers instead.

my wonderful hubby who goes along with my crazy ideas!

freezing my tail off before the start of the race!

at the finish line! I did it!

The medal and the bib number. I guess I took a pic of my husbands bib number!

I was about a minute slower I think from last years 5K, but that was fine with me. I did it running the entire time and my average was 11.05 minutes with a finish time of 34.26.
I was happy to come in in the upper 1/2 of total race participants! The fastest guy finished in a little over 15 minutes, wow, he was really moving. This may be my last timed 5K, I would like to keep running just for fun, but I don't know if I will enter any more official 5K's besides the Color run which is not timed and just pure fun.
I hope everyone has a great weekend and keep on sparking everyone!
