The 5k this past Saturday was a success all around:
I wore my new neon yellow dry fit,
|The most important part of racing: good hair.|
I PR'ed and placed 2nd in my age group,
|Boom: age group medal.|
and the best part: my husband came in 3rd in his age group. Surprise! (Don't worry, I still beat him.)
|Holy s@#$! Third place!|
Besides this, though, it was a success because running finally felt good again. The last few months, running has been a struggle; painful both physically and mentally, and difficult to make progress with. But during and after the race, I was happy to be running and felt like I could go on forever. Winning all around.
