Finishing our warm up
Just before the start
Struggling hard just past the mile 2 marker
This hill SUCKS!!!!
I did it!
And look what I get!
First (Kim) and Third (me) in our age groups
My bronze medal
My splits were awful and I really struggled during the third mile (when the hills start) but Kim told me over and over again that I had this race. That I was strong. That I was capable. I'm so thankful for her encouragement. I'm also not ashamed to say that I grunted with every step during the sprint to the finish line. Those things got me my new 5K PR of 24:54 and third place in my age group.
I have several other 5Ks lined up for the year and I'm while I'm pretty sure my times will just keep getting better, I'm also pretty sure that this will be the only medal I get. Which is why I love the Frosty Footrace. Running a race with my best friend and I have a chance to win a medal? What more could I ask for?
