Fast & The Furriest 5K

Thanks to Shooter for the pic!

Saturday's Fast & The Furriest races were so much fun. Sheila, Eric & Shooter rocked the 10K and all got PRs. I ran the 5K, which was new this year, and finished in 21:46 (7th out of 168). As I was rounding the final turn to the finish, someone yelled that I was the first woman, but I didn't think it was true. Lucky for me all the fast people ran the 10K, so I actually was the overall female winner of the 5K. I never won a race before, and probably never will again, but it was pretty sweet. Plus I got a medal and a $50 gift card to Fleet Feet.

I ran one 5K in 2009 (23:26) and two in 2010 (22:59 and 22:22), so this is my fastest time in recent years, but I would still like to beat my fastest time from college cross country (which was around 20:30 I think). I always wanted to break 20 minutes but never did when I was younger. Hopefully I will get there someday.

Lyric of the moment: "This is what it looks like, this is what it feels like. And this is your heart beating faster, faster..."


  1. If you don't stop trying to justify the reason why you won this race ima slap yo ass! You can only run against the people who show up on the day of the race. FACT, You ran the race faster than ANY other woman on that course... be proud!!!!!!!!

  2. You won a race! That is so awesome!
