new pr!! they staggered the 10k and 5k by 5 minutes, so the clock in the picture is 5 minutes more than my time and about 5 seconds after i crossed the finish line, so… i ran the 5k in 33:10, which is almost an entire minute faster than my previous fastest time!! i did end up taking a couple short walk breaks, but i still beat my best time, so i’ll take it! also, i think with all the adrenaline and nerves, my “slow” starting pace turned into running miles 1 and 2 at a 10:30 pace, so that definitely accounts for how tired i felt on mile 3.
right after i finished, i was able to go to a booth to get my results printed out, and it turns out i placed right around the middle for both my age group (20-29) as well as overall — and considering i’m still so new to running, i’m actually really happy with those results :) so looking forward to continuing on this journey and continuing to improve!
also, a huuuge thank you to everyone who voiced their support! you guys are awesome and i appreciate every single one of you!
september miles: 58.35 / 50
