Today I ran my 9th 5k in the past year thanks to Outer Banks Bootcamps. I did much better than last week, but still lots of room for improvement. Last week I ran the race in 42:20 and today I ran it in 39:52. This was the exact same course as last week. I was shooting for a new PR, but a trash truck driving 35 MPH made me almost miss the race. I made it to the start line with about 2 minutes to spare.
I skipped boot camp this morning so I would perform better, but my legs had issues. Since I was late for the race I didn’t warm up and throughout the race I had to keep stopping to stretch. I am happy I bettered my time, just not a new PR.
When I saw the picture from today’s race, I thought I should just post all the scary race photos and out myself as an official scary looking runner.
Must mention that Re and I had run a 5k not even 12 hours before and also participated in Bootcamp the morning of this race.
Well – that’s all the photos I have and I am proud that I ran in every race, so I will own the scary pictures as well since it is a reminder of setting a goal and succeeding! Not sure when my next race is but I will be sure to post that picture too!
