Completed my first 5K this morning.  I peetered out a little bit at the end - big old hill that kicked my toosh.  But, I still came in at a time of 32:37 - didn'think that was too bad for my first one!  I was a little over 3 minutes behind the woman that won for my age group...

I had been doing hills on my road when training - but that must have been 2x the size of any hill that I have to do... The course on a whole was quite hilly - but I know that this is the same course used for a number of races in our area.  So, I am thinking I need to start running that for training instead of running on my road.  Bonus - there is a lot less traffic there than my road!
