My time in my SECOND 5K in as many months.
The Frigid 5K.
My only goal? Beat 47:04.7 the time of my first 5K.
It rained. The entire time.
I was drenched but oh so happy!

By the end of the day, the rain turned into a very wet snow that dropped six inches by the end of the night and gave my husband an opportunity to experience nature outside while I experienced the nature of my 4 and 2 year old grandbabies inside. I think we were both happy with our choices.
I have been playing a lot of racquetball both casually with friends and competitively with my husband so I was certain that I would have a much easier time and would be able to run more but I was wrong. My lung capacity is not anywhere close to what it should be. I have to add some aerobic exercise to my anaerobic racquetball so I can be prepared for next months. I don’t know which race yet, I just know I want to be at or under the 40 minute mark.
Another fun fact, I went to my first CIRCUIT TRAINING with a personal trainer who I have decided to refer to as hot Zach when not in his immediate hearing zone. Of course when it was all over I wanted to die. I still wanted to die as I drove home. And as soon as I got home. And an hour later. Well, you get the idea. This is NOT for the faint of heart. I am determined. I will be going every Monday and Friday. And hey, I only have to get up at 4:30.
