Unfortunately, my training was severely lacking, with my longest distance run less than a week before the event (and not much better, or often, before that):
But I managed to run a 33:29 (roughly a 10 minute pace?) and come in 331st place (out of 640 people--also 186th place out of 426 women), which I can't complain about considering how little I trained. Unlike my running friends who have just fallen in love with running more after initial races and are now prepping for marathons, I have no desire to run longer distances at all. I will confess that it was a neat experience running through the city and traffic lights with no cars. And honestly, the groups of people on the corner cheering? I loved it. I was pretty moved by it. My favorite was the middle school marching band playing in the middle of it. So maybe I'd a 5K again...but I'd like to be a lot better shape than this round.
