A few weeks ago, I ran in the Race For Hearts 5K. It was an OK race. Very small crowd, which if they gave away awards I totally would have placed in my age group! Even finishing in a slow and sloggy 28:00. The race did have cool swag.

I went out too fast, my calves were cramping, and every time I looked at my pace, it kept getting slower and slower.

And hello to Travy – it was awesome meeting you!
Since today is my birthday, (Happy Birthday To MEEEEEE) I am on the fence about racing the morning after. But Run 4 Garden City is a 5K I have never done before. I am in walking distance to the start line at Veterans Park, so I may do it. It won’t be a very speedy race on my part.

I was going to register online on Wednesday and it said it registration closed at 5:00pm. It was 4:00pm when I logged on. So what is Blue Circle Sports on Eastern Time? I thought they were a local company? We will see about registering at packet pickup. I now have to spend $10 extra. grrr. If I do it, I’ll let you all know. 🙂
I will be doing the 5K at the Idaho Potato Marathon on May 17th.

I wish I could do the half or the full but Doctors Orders. No long distance running. I really should type up a post about that…
Anyways, that’s the race update for me here. Share with me your latest fun runs. Any races coming up for you?
