On Saturday morning, Chris and I ran the Shamrock’n 5K over in West Sacramento. This was my first time participating in this particular 5K and I really enjoyed it! The St. Patrick’s Day theme was fun and the race itself wasn’t too crowded. (In the last two 5K’s I ran, there were over 20,000 participants each.) As for my time, I didn’t do too great: Chris and I both finished in about 37 minutes. Typically, I finish 5K’s in about 30 minutes, but for this one, I wasn’t feeling very competitive. I just wanted to stick by my husband and have fun, and that’s exactly what I did.
Even though I didn’t PR or anything, this race has inspired me to get back into running and start working on my fitness goals of completing a 10K, and eventually, a half marathon. I’m thinking this summer for a 10K, and the Shamrock’n Half Marathon in 2015. Or who knows? Maybe if I get good enough at running, I’ll be ready for a half marathon by THIS fall!
Are you a runner? If not, what’s your exercise of choice?
