So I did 5K jogging all the way! Lots of valuable lessons learned. I warmed up for longer than 5mins just before the briefing and kind of half jogged half figeted on the spot through the briefing (good thing they all know I am crazy anyways). I really gave myself a talking to about not starting off too fast and not getting swept up in the start but I did it wasn't so much a I have to keep up with everyone but more a BLEEP I have all these people whooshing around me and I freaked out. I had to really take a min to refocus my breathing and find the right pace but I did it without having to walk. Next time I will move even further to the back.
As horrible as this sounds but the best part of the run was catching up with and passing my 8 year old daughter who was running with her uncle on the last lap as she had declared that mummy ran too slow to run with. Think she might agree to run with me next time ha!
