I diiiid it! (Well, duh. That part wasn’t up for debate.)
However, I finished it 35:39, 3 minutes less than my first 5k! I ran it with my team, and we all pretty much ran it together, except for a few fast bastards. I felt really good, and I ran the whole time. (Other 5ks I’ve done, I’ve had to do some walking.) I even had some reserve energy at the end and ran really hard the last minute or so. I think I could have done at least a minute or so faster, but I stuck with my team. The next one I do (any takers????) will really kick ass.
