Virtual 5K Results

I love a weekend where you can find yourself sipping on a coffee at an airport in our nation's capital in the morning, and running along Bayshore Boulevard in Florida in the afternoon.

This was the weekend of the Virtual 5K, hosted by Little By Little. I can tell you one thing. It was HOT out. I ran with my new waterbottle that has a little sweatstrap on it so you can hold it. I actually hardly drank any of it and found myself pouring it all over myself somewhere after the second mile. Running in the Florida heat is brutal.

So, my results? I undershot it a little on the map unfortunately, so it turns out I ran 2.96 miles instead of 3.1. My time was 34:55. Not too bad for me. Would you believe I forgot my camera? Lame! So you'll have to take my word for it that I ran. If my legs could talk, they would tell you. Because right now, 2 hours later, they are on fire. I also still have a bit of a heat headache but I feel great for having gotten a good run in.

I do want to say that it's been so cool to meet so many people doing the Couch to 5K program (who knew there were so many!), and it was neat knowing that so many people around the world were running a 5k on their own this weekend like I was.

It's on to the new training schedule starting tomorrow! Training for a *shudder* 10k! This should be fun!

  2. Congrats on your run and time today. I am in Florida, and I agree about the killer heat. If I am not out the door by 7 a.m., I run at night. I still do not understand why on earth they schedule most 5Ks around here for 7:30 a.m.

  3. I'm supposed to be starting my 5K training tomorrow and I just stitches today in my tummy. I don't know if I can run even though it's only a couple. I'll have to play it by ear :( They come out in 10 days so it may have to wait. bummer!!

  4. Congrats Christie!!! You ROCK!!
