I ran the Bottineau Neighborhood Earth Day 5k today, my first 5k run ever. I have to say that for a neighborhood event, they did a great job and about 100 people showed up (but I'm a horrible judge of numbers).
I did pretty well and knocked 2 minutes off of my time. Not bad for a girl who couldn't run a mile this winter. I hope to do even better next Saturday for Get in Gear.
One lesson I learned the hard way is to drink more water! Especially when your tummy isn't very happy.
Thanks to Rachel for being a very patient running partner and sticking with me!
