5K today sweaty but super happy
Thursday, September 18, 2014
Today was the 17th annual fall classic fun run at my company.
This is the 4th one I have participated in. My sport is typically brisk walking. I don't like running because it's too much impact on my knees and hips so I walk as fast as I can. Most days I do about 14 minute miles and I'm proud I can walk so fast.
Today, I'm super thrilled. I was able to keep up a super rate and I managed to finish in 40:31 at a rate of 13 minutes 7 seconds per mile. This is the fastest rate I'm ever tracked and my best time for a 5K
And I just found out I came in 2nd for my age group! I got a medal!
