My husband and 2 friends of ours from Able2know ran a 5K race today. I came in last of our group and I was probably last of everybody who ran, but that doesn’t matter a lot to me.
Last year, I finished my first 5K (I did six that year) in about an hour and 4 minutes. Today I finished in 40 minutes and a few miscellaneous seconds (8?). I intend to run eight of then this year.
So far, so good.
