I ran my first 5k today!

It went well! There were quite a few people there despite how cold the weather turned out to be. I ran slowly for the first two miles, but when I saw the sign that read "Mile 2", meaning that I was on the final mile, I pushed it up quite a bit and passed two women who I had been trailing up to that point. Then I saw the finish line that was lined on both sides with a small crowd of people, and I sprinted those last few yards to make a time of less than thirty-seven minutes. I have to say, those last few yards were exhilarating! I'm glad I paced myself through most of the race so that I could get the most out of the finish.
