Amos Herr 5K

This race was a little different than other races I have run. It was an evening race. Strange, right? Rain Rain and more RAIN poured all day before the event. I was nervous. My 4 year old was signed up and very excited for her first Kids Fun Run and I was sad that she might not be able to run. The clouds looked dark and mean. We arrived at the race and the opted to start the kids run first. Rain lightened and off the kiddos went...
After the kids run, the skies opened up and the rain stopped completely. I was happy to get my run on. I did not have a set plan for this race. Just to run as long as I could and take walk breaks when needed.
I ended up taking 3 walk breaks. about 90 seconds at each mile. Crossed the finish line in just over 35 min so I beat my goal by 10 whole minutes!!!
