Relay for Life 5K
Well, last weekend I ran the annual Searcy Relay for Life 5K. The proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. It was a good course. I’m pretty used to it because it actually ran through my neighborhood. My friend Jon and I decided it would be a fun little run to do. He also invited his wife’s new brother-in-law, Justin. We had a pretty good time. I ended up running it in 28:16. I came in 1st in my division! Seriously. I’m looking at the trophy on my desk as I type. Yep, I had a guy on my tail the whole time, but he couldn’t take me.
Here’s the course:
Tomorrow, I’m planning on running the Searcy MADD Dash 5K. I had thought about doing the 10K but decided not to. I think Jon may run with me tomorrow, too. Well, I say run with me, but what I mean is go to the race with me, run the first half mile together, then watch him ease into the distance. He’s just too fast for me. Which is great. I don’t want to hold anyone back. My thoughts are, “Hey, we can train everyday together and run together, but when it comes to race time, you gotta run your own race. Don’t let me be the one holding you back and giving you an excuse not to push yourself.”
Also, I hope tomorrow’s race has more than 1 person in my division. The trophy just isn’t the same when you know that you got 1st place and last place at the same time.
