Saturday was the big day! Rain and wind were predicted so we were a little wary about the weather. It didn't rain, but it sure was windy! We had a few hills and some rough terrain on the course and the wind didn't help much either. My goal was to run the 5k in 37 minutes or less (that's what I calculated I should be able to do based on my training runs). I don't know what happened but I must have had a ton of energy because I finished the race in 31 minutes and 51 seconds! I placed 202 out of over 360 people! I don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty proud of myself and I'm looking forward to my next race!
