5K Results and softball!

Yesterday was the Free to Breathe 5K! I wanted to find out my offical results before I posted anything! I DID PR but I didn't necessarily get the time I wanted! I finished in 28:09! That's just TEN SECONDS off the time I wanted! Oh I said before...there's always the next race! I came in 7th in my age group out of 43 people! I also came in overall #115 out of 402 people! I don't think that's too shabby!! lol I've made a new goal...I want to get 27:59 in at least one 5K this season! We'll see! For this race, I started kind of close to the front but I was still stuck for a few seconds behind a slow moving group so maybe next time, I can get a little closer to the front...that may help with shaving off a few seconds!! lol We'll see! Kayla (My Sister in Law) also ran with me and she did awesome! She PR'd too at 31:06! Great job, Kayla!

I felt good running yesterday. There were times I had to cough and one time I had to walk cause I couldn't catch my breath. I did stop like 2 or 3 times for like 2 seconds to take a deep breath but I continued running after that. Only once did I walk a little (like maybe 10 seconds or so) to try and get a good deep breath but other than that, it was great! It was hard and I really pushed myself. At least at the end of this race, I was able to kick it up and sprint on in! (I couldn't do that last time cause I was sick!) I'll post pictures tomorrow!! :0)

So I think I started something with this running skirt thing. Last season, NO ONE in my area wore a running skirt at all! I always got odd looks! Sooo, this year, I've noticed TWO girls already in my running group that are hooked! One was wearing black/purple plaid on Saturday! I was so excited!!! lol

In my thinking about running skirts, I had to laugh at myself today! We had softball practice for our co-ed church team and I was thinking how funny it would be if I were to wear a running skirt there! Hahahah

I'd feel like THESE girls! How cool would it have been to play for a league like this?! I know those were tough times (during the war) but I would have loved it! My all time FAVORITE movie is A League of Their Own!!! I wish I were better at softball...I would have loved to play for college. I also went into Nursing too and that's kinda impossible so oh well. At least I can do it for fun at times like this! Games start in April as does my next 5K!
