Well, as you know my 4th started off with the Claremont Freedom 5k Race. My mom and I went yesterday to pick-up my bib and shirt (it's just ok lol) and then drove the course route. I didn't want any surprises, which thank god we did, the course overall was very pretty, it went thru the historic parts of the city and then the Claremont Colleges gorgeous! But then the last .5 mile was a huge hill...O-M-G. I run a
I slept pretty well since I was exhausted from staying up a bit late cleaning and making the healthy desserts for today (everyone is coming here for a BBQ). So any way I woke up about 6am putzed around a bit then mom pick me and DQ up for the race (hubs and TaTa had to work this am). The weather was PERFECT overcast and cool THANK GOD! When we got there we watched the kids Fun Run, (I walked around a bit to warm up) then it was line up time. I lined up behind the 35-40min pacer and waited, I heard a few folks talking about "the hill" ugg. Then we were off, it was quite a congested start and it took a while to get to the actual "Starting Line" but after that it was good going. I found a good pace and went, I just kept it slow and steady, I even passed a few people that had been way ahead of me, they finally had to slow down and walk, YAY ME
According to my Nike+ I ran 3.64mi. I'm wondering if that was because I was so far back at the start (but a whole .50 miles??) in 41'54"min. and averaged a pace of 11"29 awesome! So according to Nike+ I finished a 5k in about 36min, but I'll have to check my "official" time tonight.
Now I'm gonna blow it up with some pics....
