First 5K of 2013, Done.


A late night to bed, not enough running the week of and a really crowded 5K group made me wonder if I was really going to be able to use the Winston-Salem Color Run as a training block. Five color stations, a few hills and 25 minutes later though, I was super happy with how my first 5K of the year went. A PR and good times with friends. It was nice to run with a friend+coworker and running in a tutu wasn’t such a big deal. I was a little disappointed that it wasn’t a timed race–so no record of the PR (ha)–but it was a great course.

Only challenge? The 45-minute shower to get all of the color off.

Now, anticipation for Cooper River Bridge 10K in just two weeks!

Country Music Half Marathon? Only 5 weeks, yikes.
