As you may recall a couple weeks ago was my first 5k of the year. The first in over a year actually. It was a race that I really enjoyed. It was a fast flat course. The location was great & tons of friends & acquaintances ran the race too making it more fun!
The race was called the Entenmanns Great South Bay Run, held in the town of Bay Shore. The race is not just a 5k…there is also a 10k & a Half Marathon! The race started & ended right there on the water. Beautiful view for sure! Even the middle of the race was interesting running right through the village.
Before the 5k start…
…and I finish! (time on clock is for 10k – or maybe the half?)
My official time was 34:35! This was a PR for me. I truly pushed myself to the max. I still didn’t run the entire thing, but I did manage to run 98% of it. Actually, I pushed myself so much when I crossed the finish line I did feel a little like a “Biggest Loser” during a last chance workout as I gagged – trying to hold back a vomit episode – embarrassing! (blush)
With the excitement of this race we all made plans to run a Turkey Trot together this Thanksgiving morning!
I hoping to see this crew at the Turkey Trot!
