I am so proud of myself! Today I ran my first 10K! It was part of the Wild Hog Grand Forks Half Marathon. Wild Hog is a restaurant in Grand Forks that was main sponsor of the race. The specialize in barbeque type food. This was the inaugural event that includes a half marathon, 10K, and 5K. The race course took us through residential neighborhoods in the southend of Grand Forks.
My goal was to finish in an hour and fifteen minutes. I figured that if I can do a 5K in 33 and half minutes, that would be double and a little more. I am proud to say I beat my goal! I finished in one hour, 6 minutes and 10 seconds!
At 34 I ran my first 5K. At 35 I ran my first 10K. Will 36 bring a half marathon?

Tonight I participated in my first 5K in my new town. The past few weeks have been crazy with moving and starting a new job. It was nice to run. The 5k was a fundraiser for the Lake Region Suicide Prevention Committee. I am currently living with a friend until I can get into my own place and she was the chair of the event. There was also a silent auction and free will offering soup supper. They had amazing Knoephla soup! There was not an official time to this race, but I timed myself with the stopwatch on my phone and I finished in 33 minutes and 31 seconds.

Today was the Tour de Forks 5k to benefit Altru's Breast Cancer Coalition. This is the second year I have ran this race. My time was 33 minutes and 23 seconds. This was only 31 seconds slower than my fastest time! I was very happy with this time and it was perfect running weather. Last year on the day of this race it was in the mid 80's--very hot! I also won a door prize--a free movie ticket!
