I am not an endurance runner
…but why do I love it so?
Today marked my 3rd 5K of the season. It was a first for Matt. It was such a great run, however, at about 1 1/2 miles I landed funny on my right leg sending my once previously broken hip into rebellion. Matt looked at me about a half mile later and asked me if I was OK because I started to breathe all funny. I told him that when I stepped in the pothole it did a number on my hip. He understood and ran with me the whole way. I don’t know if he would have beat me, though. He tends to get over-excited, sprint, and then have to walk…
We finished in 26:32. I can’t say I’m too excited about that number since my previous race was super hilly and I did that in 28…and the first one I did, I got a time of 26:02 or something. Oh well. I’m still proud of myself regardless. I had a great time with Matt. I lost to my boss, Jay, by 45 seconds. He surprisingly didn’t gloat that much. Good man.
However, I did place 2nd in my age group. I don’t know how many women there were… but I’ll take it. Matt placed 2nd in his age group as well. Woo woo!
So…there you go. Meh. But yay!
