This morning I got up at ten minutes to 6am, threw on my clothes and headed to Quiet Waters Park for the Race for a Cure 5K. There was a nice turnout, clear skies and the humidity was in full effect. This is only my second 5k event: my first one took place February of last year so it was much cooler and it was still a little dark when we started. Not so for this one. The sun was high in the sky by 7am, I was already sticky from the heat/humidity combo and I rushed to get ready so I didn't eat or drink much of anything beforehand.
However, it was still a good time. The race went throughout the park and around a couple small lakes so the views were nice while running. I also beat my time by about 4 minutes from the last 5k I did so I felt pretty good about that.
Some things I will do differently for the next one: try to eat a little something before the race cuz I was dragging for awhile, and wear a tank top and shorts-no sleeves or jogging pants cuz it's just too freaking hot for that nonsense! Other than that, the race went well and I'm happy with the results. It's nice to have a good run done before 8am, an iced coffee already consumed and some pool time to look forward to. Happy Sunday!
