Yesterday was my second 5k race, and while it was slower than I’d like, I had a big improvement in time from my first 5k race back in July 2009.
Back then, I ran the route in 34:24, and this time it was 30:09.
So, I am still not a trailblazer, but I am satisfied that I accomplished a new PR (personal record) and shaved off more than 4 minutes from my previous time.
Here I am in the approach to the final turn. I am the one in the long-sleeve black shirt.
I was pretty worn out after the race. After a few minutes, some watermelon and half a bagel, I was ready for my close-up.
My family was out of town for my first race, so it was nice to have everybody there this time around.
Now, I’ve got to find my next race.
