    Labor Day 5K

    Summer is almost over and what better way to end summer then with a 5K. Heck I started summer that way so why not..

    Memorial Day's 5K time was kind of messed up since the race ended up being a half mile longer. I calculated my time at 35.55.

    I decided in June to run another 5K this time hoping to get a real honest time. I ran the Diaper Rash at received a time of 38.31. This time I ran with a friend and we really were not pushing ourselves.

    I ran/walked a couple ColorRun's during the summer but really after the Memorial Day race I did not do much training.

    This all brings us to Labor Day 5K. This was my first time racing this route. I had ran the route with my daughter the week before and best time was 39 mins. I was not real hopeful. Race day I woke up with a horrible head cold. My running partner got sick also so really had no idea how well we would do. We started off strong with a 10 min mile pace. We managed to run our first mile at this 10/11 min mile pace. Took a short walk and decided that I should go on without her since she was really not feeling so hot. Sadly I took off run/jogging/walking without her the rest of the way. I finished at 35.12 net time. After finishing the first time I decided I should go back and finish strong with my dear friend. I found her just a couple minutes behind me and together we finished the race.
