Test yourself 5k


WHAT: Test Yourself 5K & Family Fun Run (1K)
WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 2011
WHERE: The Shops at Legacy in Plano, Texas
WHY: Because Running for Charity is Cool!
BENEFITING: The Jim Utley Foundation

Today was my second 5 k. The weather was great. It actually started out pretty chilly at 49 degrees! I met two of my friends there to run the race! The first half of the course was pretty flat. The second portion was hilly and against the wind. At about 2.6 I was ready to be done. We were all hoping for a PR! What a PR day it was!! I finished in 23:20. I ended up getting first in my age category and 36 overall out of 385. My goal for today was to run it in 23:45! It feels really good when you accomplish what you set out to do!! My friend also got first in her age category! It was a great day, ran a good race and donated money to a good charity!! Life is good!!
