Magnolia Meltdown 5K

(excuse the sweaty look)

Today was my 5K with my running group. My ultimate goal was to beat my last 5K time which I did, finishing at 27:02. I was hoping to finish about a minute faster but it was hot (80-something and 93% humidity) and the course was tough. 3 different people in our group who were the faster runners said it was by far the hardest 5K course they have ever run. So that made me feel better. The course started uphill and ended up a really hard hill, not fun!

Overall I'm happy and I won 3rd place in my age group. Next up is the half marathon!!

3rd place!!! Awesome! Yikes, sounds like a tough course starting uphill AND ending downhill. Great job!
