A PR Makes you Feel Good!!!!

Today was my first 5k in a long time and first PR in two years!! Yay! I did it. Now it may not be fast by some standards but to me it was a long time coming! I am really proud of myself. My last PR was a high :28 and the last 5k I did was :32 minutes and today's PR was :27.46!! I'm thinking I could have gone much faster if my legs weren't like bricks from my cold and windy 36 mile bike ride yesterday!

During the whole run I felt good but right at about the end when speed really matters my legs would not go any faster, they felt like bricks! I came in 95th out of 509 women in the 30-39 age group. Which I am quite proud of! :) I really can't express how happy I am right now. I know it's not like I broke a record or came in first in my age group but this took me forever to do!! I love running... today at least. And I am dork for wearing the race shirt at the actual race. I had no clean running clothes and I thought they were cute shirts!
