Definitely have reached 5K

Graduated on the 25th February and have not missed too many runs since. Last Saturday I was pretty sure I had run 5K but had not measured it accurately, only on the Running Bug site. This morning I decided to take my gps with me, I've used it for years geocaching, and measure my run. It was raining, cold and very muddy. I decided to be brave and start without my hoody on as I always end up tying it round my waist anyway. I ran 3.25miles in 38 minutes, I think that is 5.23km. That may not be particularly fast but I was thrilled. I even announced it to a couple who parked next to us and were preparing for their run.
