Personal Best!!!

Saturday was my 5K
It was windy
It was cold
But I still ran the whole thing without walking
....and had my personal best time!

Total time: 30:15
Average pace: 9:44/mile

I placed 34th out of 88 women!

 Me and Zoe eating breakfast before the run (Hard boiled egg)
 I give these shoes 50% credit for my great time. They are so light and comfortable! My chip was on and ready to roll!
Dan and I before the run! We were really cold and glad we wore long sleeve shirts!

I just have to put in a throwback from last year. This was the same run, Dan's 1st 5K! I did the 1 mile walk. This was pre-band for me last year. I started the C25K program shortly after this run because it inspired me!

Thankfully my mom came to watch and brought her camera, so we got some great pictures! Here is Dan finishing! He is fast and came in a few minutes ahead of me.

This is my personal favorite picture because I had a burst of energy at the end and passed 2 girls. She was looking at me like "whoa, where did she come from" 
Can you spot me? This one I like because my legs look small.
Dan helping me get my chip off my shoe after the run.

This was a lot of fun! I would highly recommend doing an organized run. I am really looking forward to my next one! To think, last year I could not even run for 1 minute without stopping, now I can run 3 miles without stopping! Our bodies are amazing if we let them be!
