running update

It has been a while since I updated y'all on how running is going. 
Well, it has been a while since I update y'all on anything! 
But let's stick to running for now. 

Saturday I completed my third 5k since I started running last year. 
And I finished in my best time yet! 
I finished 10 minutes faster than my last race! 
I cannot adequately express how good it felt to cross that finish line seeing that time on the clock. 
The elements could have contributed to the faster time Saturday. 
It was FLOODING and cold! 
All of my extremities were numb by the end of the race. 

I am still not the greatest "runner" in the world. 
I would definitely fit better into the jogger category. 
And I still cannot run the entire 3.2 miles straight. 
But my walking "breaks" are getting shorter and shorter!

I do not do these races to compete with other people. 
I just want to finish better than I did the last race. 
I may have set the bar a little too high with this one though!

My next 5k is coming up in 2 short weeks on March 9th 
and my sister wants to do another one on March 30th. 
I have not completely committed to the March 30th one though. 
That would be three 5ks in a little over a months time. 
However, she will probably convince me to do it. 
I am a sucker for the, 
"but I do not want to race by myself" argument. 
The things we do for family!
