At 8:30 we lined up for the shot gun start. My sister and I were at the back of the line and as soon as the gun went off, we were passing people like it was our J-O-B. The whole course was pretty flat and easy to run. There were a couple inclines here and there but no hills. The pace that we were running at was pretty fast 7:30-8 minute pace. My sister was keeping track and I was just jamming out to my music and keeping up with her. Everything felt really smooth running. We got to the last half mile and we picked up the pace some more. I was trying to catch a girl in front of me but she kept on moving up a little bit more than I could catch her at. My heart rate was pumping and I saw the finish line time at 27:50 and at first I thought holy shit! But then I was like GET YOUR ASS MOVING! I sprinted the last couple of meters and my official time was 28:01! A two minute PR. I felt great after I stopped running, my legs didn't feel heavy like my first 5k and I wasn't as out of breath as before. basically, I felt fucking awesome!
My next 5k is in October down in Milwaukee at UWM. It's called the Panter Prowl and I am excited because one of my friends decided to run it with me. I can't wait to see how this next one turns out :)
