My last road race was April 8th – New Mexico half marathon. I claimed state 31 on my 50 state quest. That race was plumb painful. I walked 8-9 of the 13.1 miles. My body ached so much that I decided to give long distance running a break.
These days my running consists of whatever I feel like doing on any given day 🤣🤣 and usually not more than 3 miles. I decided to run this race Wednesday after checking the weather to see if it would be sunny. I’m over running in the rain and cold. Treadmills are made for a reason.
This 5K was not near my home but it was 10 minutes away from one of my yoga studios. So I could get in a run then hit hot yoga right after.. and I did.
The course was very hilly. Those long type ascends with short descends 🙄.
I ran the first hill but walked all the others. It was just too hot to want to be bothered with the added exertion. Yes I have become a lazy runner – shoot me.
The race ends near a pretty little park at the bottom of a hill. I was pleased with the down hill finish 🙌🏾. The clock said 36 minutes but I started at least a minute or two after the clock time. I made sure to stay clear of the “real runners”. I was in front of the baby strollers which, by the way, passed me on the course.
