My first 5k.
Sunday’s Mercy Heart Mini Marathon included the 5k, the Mini Marathon, the Heart Walk and a kid’s 2K. Having never run one before, I was a little nervous. But it honestly was kind of exciting to have been a part of it. And just cool when there are than many people downtown. Running toward the finish line on 5th Street with people cheering too was a rush . . . and I was about 15 minutes behind the leaders! It was not a great time (32:00) but was actually better than when I run on the treadmill at the gym. Hopefully for my next 5k I can improve my time. I kept my little bib with my number ‘3603’ on it as a memento.
I stayed and took pictures of some of the Mini Marathon that started at 10:00 am. I caught the runners as they were coming back in to downtown and were heading for the finish line.
