Okay, I’m addicted. I did a 5K race on a trail in Uxbridge. I finished it in 36:42, in spite of the hills and unpredictable nature of trails. I’m
pretty proud of myself, even though I walked a little.
I got a medal and technical t-shirt. Maybe I should keep my race numbers and do something creative with them.
Now that I’ve had a taste of competition, I want to do more races, longer distances (while being careful not to increase too fast). If I can do a half marathon in the fall along with some 5K and 10K races, I will be very happy.
