Un-fun Run

So, this morning I ran a 5k. My friend Michelle had warned me that there was a big hill but I did not realize just how big it would be. And it was colder than I'm used to running in. So between this giant hill and the cold air I was exhausted before I'd even gone a mile. I ended up walking most of the hill. Luckily the last mile is going back downhill and that was much easier. I would have liked to have a better time, but I figure with the hill and cold I still did ok. I placed 11th in my division with a time of 36:56. Some days I'm not sure if running to get fit is worth it, it would be much easier to check out diet and slimming pills reviews and go that route lol. I do enjoy running though. Most days. When it's not too hot or too cold, and there aren't giant hills lol. I am signed up to run a 10k in 3 months and luckily that course is much easier, I just have to increase my stamina.

I think your time was pretty darn good. I agree, that hill and the weather was hard to deal with but you did it! And here in 3 months, the 10k won't be too hard on you. Keep up the good work! Look forward to seeing you run again soon. :D
