Today, I ran the first of my 5K races in the Virtual Series challenge. It has been about 2 months since my last race. I am also happy to report that during this race I PR’ed! Not bad for just coming off an injury.
Here are the results:
Avg Pace: 11:03
This takes the record away from my last outdoor 5K the Star Wars Rival Run 5K which was done in 35:14. It also takes the record away from my fastest indoor treadmill run which was held by the Princess 5K which was done in 34:51.
Last year, I also ran the challenge and for the first 5K of that challenge the Mad Tea Party 5K which was run inside on the treadmill which I completed in 49:29.
Okay two out of three 5ks in the books. My girlfriend completed her first yesterday. We ran a charity 5K in Salisbury, Mass. It was
in the mid 80s with the dew point over 70. It was like running in Florida.
Okay now we have entered a whole new level of crazy. What comes next? "I received my medal and the shading didn't match
up to the picture of the medal!" I think anyone who signed up for the races will be happy, as long as they are not cardboard
cut outs of the medals.
