I ran in the first wave and finished at a decent time as well. I tried to keep a pace around 10 or under. It's definitely different from running on the treadmill. Running uphill, downhill, against wind resistance off the bay...all takes a toll on your pace and time. I didn't do as well as I'd hoped, but all and all I was happy with it and will only work to improve with every race!
I was so mesmerized by the view of the ocean as well. I could definitely run this route over and over again! It was absolutely gorgeous! It's still hard to believe that I live somewhere so beautiful and that this is really my life. I love where God has brought our family. :)
So I'm already looking for my next 5k. Hopefully next month! Then I'm hoping to run a 10k by December and start training for a half marathon! So ready to wipe that one out! Did I mention I'm planning to run that half in Disney World? If I'm going to do it, then I'm going BIG! There's no other place where I'd rather run it! I've already got the buzz lightyear ensemble picked out to run in!
So who's with me?
Let the training begin!!
