Last night I ran the Festival 5.1, which was a local fundraiser put on by a church, proceeds to benefit youth in the area who are in need.
This was the toughest race I have done. I heard many comments from others saying the same. It was FUN, but HARD. There were some big hills. One is right near my work and I drive over it every day...I never imagined trying to run up it. Yikes.... The last 1/3 of the run was also on a trail. which is new for me. That actually was not too bad. It was those nasty hills...long and steep...that gave me a run for my money. I am very happy with my finishing time of 31:07...3.5 minutes slower than my last 5k. Which is fine...it was also 10x harder!
