About eight weeks ago I started the Couch-to-5k program.
And to keep myself motivated I signed up for a race that fell the weekend of week 8, the final week, of my Couch-to-5k training.
Week 5 out of 8 of training PLUS an extra mile.
I was a little unprepared.
I finished the 4 mile race in 48:06, averaging a 12:02 minute pace.
I was very happy with my time, considering my lack of training.
It was definitely more fun running with 2,500 people than running alone, so it looks like I'll be signing up for another race pretty soon. But I think I'll finish my C25K program first...
