Running On Empty

Today I ran my third 5km race since October. Suffice to say that I'm quite proud. I mean, to think that in September I could hardly run for 30 seconds without coughing up blood it's actually quite an achievement to now be pounding the pavement for a solid 30 mins and being able to spit out enough energy to actually sprint at the end. shocking. truly shocking. I was 439/1200 runners, 52/181 women in my category and was still 16 seconds too slow to make my goal time, but at least I made it! My whole team did quite well and they all made their goal times, some with time to spare! I think it would be much more difficult if we didn't have an amazing group of people that consistently kicked each others asses. Plus, our sweet little instructor Dean from the Running Room. The man could crack walnuts with his thighs but has the voice and personality of a baby rabbit. Not that I've ever heard a baby rabbit speak, but I imagine it would have Dean's voice....okay, maybe an adolescent rabbit.
