I’ve never run a 5km race so I was excited to get a chance to do a virtual 5km. Thanks to Jeff (Detroit Runner) for hosting this virtual race. I planned my week’s training so that I could fit in a 5km on Saturday. I used it as a warmup fo my Sunday marathon.
It was a beautiful morning with perfect running conditions. I loved the fact that I could walk to the start while viewing these…
I had plenty of fans to support me and give me some personal attention before the start.
I decided to take it easy as I did not want to push too hard the day before a marathon. My aim was to run under 30 mins for the 5km while staying comfortable the whole way. I ran a 2.5km loop from my house twice for the 5km.
My final time 29:09. That’s more than fast enough for this ultra runner.
The fans were very happy for me and excited that I had such a good run.
Have a great week everyone! Oh, and yes, the marathon went well too. Report will follow later this week.
