Arsenal 5K Run/Walk Recap
Between co-workers, friends, and family members, I was able to put together a team of 12, although sadly on race day we had one sick and one no show. All in all, though, it was a good showing for the East Side Running Club.
The course was very nice - winding all around the campus of Arsenal Tech, mostly on paved roads but also across grass practice fields and around the track. The start/finish line was in the football stadium. The run was not chipped, but there was a timing clock running on the scoreboard.
I had such a good run on Thursday prior to the race that I decided I was going to run this as well. I felt great, and had to keep telling myself to slow down the first mile so I didn't run out of steam. After that, I settled into a good pace and just lost myself in the music and the joy of the run. It was really so much fun! Since it wasn't chipped, I guess I have to call it an unofficial PR, but I did it in 34:37 and I am thrilled!
