Run The Quay 5K 2017

Not going to let the fact I didn't set a new PB time in this race get me down. Not going to. Not.

Ugh. It's eating me up.

Look, here's the deal: I started way back in the crowd and was jammed up in traffic the first quarter mile, barely walking until there was enough room to start running past people. My "gun time" reflects the 40 seconds or so it took me just to reach the starting line. If I'd actually been able to run from the start, I think I would've been under 25 minutes. But, the time is what it is and I'll just have to carry a chip on my shoulder until the next race when I can try again.

Next up is the sprint triathlon in July. (Unless I can find another 5K to sneak in in the meantime.) Swimming is underway. I'm slow and need to log lots of laps in the next few weeks. And then I still expect I'll be slow. But I've been doing some biking, and of course running, so just going to keep up with those and hope for the best. My goal: don't come in dead last.
