Finish Line

I forgot to tell you my time: 28:10.

My First 5K!

Ran the Frank Landy 5k Fun Run this morning in Chicago. I'm here for a conference and couldn't pass up the opportunity to take a leisurely stroll through the Windy City on a fine Spring Saturday morning.

Actually it was kinda miserable. About 50 degrees, but with a light--very cold--wind, and as you can see in the picture, a heavy drizzle that turned into a light rain at the end of the race.

I had a blast! It was truly a lot of fun! Spent some time with a friend, and beat my best time ever for this distance by over 3 minutes! To be fair, this is the first organized run I've ever done, and there's something about it that pushes you to run just a little faster than you otherwise would.

Next goal: a 10k.
