Sneak results update

Not spectacular but not horrible either. Especially since this is only the second 5K of the year.
Now I just have to figure out a 5K to do mid-May since I have the Color Run at the end of May.

Sunday Sneak

Although I really didn't want to, I got out of bed early on a Sunday morning and headed down to Cherry Creek for the 30th annual Cherry Creek Sneak. In the past I did this race every year with family and friends but I hadn't done it since 2007. This year no one signed up to go with me so I was all by myself (with about 15,000 other runners) but that was fine. I made a great playlist (Lady Gaga every other song gets me rockin') and hit the road (hubby did drive me down there so I didn't have to try to find a place to park, thanks sweetie!). I felt really good and, although I still can't jog the whole way, I think I made pretty good time. I did manage to run across the finish line. I'll report in when I get the official time. I must say the course is a lot less hill-y than the Greenwood Village one from the Cookie run so that made me a very happy girl. Plus I remembered to get some moleskin for the blister and that seemed to help.

Like a turtle

Finally did my first 5K in over a year. It wasn't pretty but I finished. All this work on the treadmill and I thought I'd be able to run more of it, at least a slow jog, but no. Jogged a brief bit in the beginning, my heart rate shot up to 175 so I had to back to down to a race/walk pace for pretty much the rest for an average pace of 13:41. I'm going to have to figure out a way to get outside more for runs - treadmill just isn't cutting it.

Results below:

Did I mention there were cookies at the end of this race?
