I finished my 5k today in 27:40! I was shooting for under 29 but secretly hoping I could do under 28....just didn't think I could. Well, I did!! And I got 1st place in my age group!!! I've never placed before!! Given this was a smaller race with about 400 racers and all my friends who run who are fast didn't do this one....but still, I was proud! I'll take it :)

Yaa Hoo for the new pr & first in your age group!  Did you win a prize? you are holding a ticket.  I have never won any give aways at a race, oh wait yeah Idid win an extra t shirt once. It was pretty forgettable. I'd be printing that race result page & marking up that bib w/ stats for sure if i won my age category.

I did! I won a ticket to the strawberry festival. The race is in plant city (which is the winter strawberry capital of the world) and the festival is a huge deal here. We go at least twice every year so this will just save us a little money ;)

 Yup I've noticed our strawberrys are coming from FL. Winning an enrty into another race is pretty cool, especially since you'd be going for the festival anyways.  Now you just get to get up earlier in the morning and head over, ha ha. I guess pack a wash cloth & a change of clothes. Good luck & get another pr!
