<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">: I did it in 32 minutes. My goal was not to stop and walk at all, but it seemed like so many hills I did have to stop and walk a couple times, I really thought I was going to puke! I'm glad I did it though and now of course I want to do more so I can do it next time at a jog/run the whole time. I did the first mile in 9 minutes, the second one I kept up a good pace, but the third one was really rough and that's where I started lagging. I'm glad to have it done, I was kind of terrified and had bad dreams about it all night...

Congrats!!!! Don't you feel great????<br><br>
I am running my first race in 9 years (haven't run one since right before I pg with my 1st) and am a bit nervous as well. I haven't really full on run the 5k distance, but I know from past races that the atmosphere keeps you going and it is ok to walk and/or take it slow. It really is fun and a great motivator.<br><br>
If you got a race shirt, wear it with pride!
