Dell Children's Medical Center 5K results!

I ran my second 5K ever this morning and have established a new PR!  The Dell Children's Medical Center 5K this morning was to benefit the Carl Teel Music Therapy Endowment at Dell Children's Medical Center.  My first 5K was the Run With the Heroes on September 11.  You can read about the last run here.  My time in that race was 30:29.  My coach, Alexis Camacho, told me this week that shaving off a minute would be great.  Well, I'm pleased to say that I shaved off 3 minutes in just under 7 weeks!!!  My time today (and my new PR) was 27:19.  Not only that, but this course had some slight hills whereas the last one was totally flat.  I guess the training is working. :)

Today I felt great when I finished, which is nice considering how achy and exhausted I felt last time.  I am going to do a few more 5Ks just to keep an eye on my time, but my next big goal is to run the Capitol 10K in March!

ETA: 4th in my division! Overall 37 out of 162.
