GOOD MORNING! Itâ€™s time for a heart-thumping 5K race through the Inner Harbor.
I donâ€™t think any of the girls in my room got a good night sleep, and Iâ€™ll admit that I tried to blow off the 5K raceâ€¦ but Anne P dragged me out of bed.
The weather this morning was GLORIOUS, so it was totally worth getting my booty out of bed.
Before we left, I had a banana, which I snagged from Gracieâ€™s bag.
And then we met about 90 other walkers and runners downstairs in the conference room.
New Balance is sponsoring parts of the event, and they gave everyone free shoes according to their walk/run needs. In the end, I decided not to wear new shoes because I knew we were going to run a very, very speedy 5K. But Iâ€™m excited to test them out for a shorter workout soon!
The 5K went around the boardwalk area in Baltimore. I tried to stay at the front of the pack, but BOY â€“ those girls can run FAST!
We ended up finishing the 5K in about 24:00 minutes. Our first mile was about 7:30, our second was 8:30, and we finished up around 7:15ish.
Iâ€™m off to the conferenceâ€¦ There is a breakfast buffet of OATMEAL and I canâ€™t wait to ATTACK it! 🙂
Check out the agenda in this post. Fit Blogginâ€™ looks like itâ€™s going to be PACKED with good information for fitness-minded folk and bloggers alike.
At what pace can you still chat at? I can talk myself silly at a 10:00/mile, but I could barely breathe during the 5K today! The other ladies could easily chat, though! So I just listened. 😉
