Oklahoma Aquarium 5K

Woo hoo!!!

Okay, so my husband ran his first ever 5K today. He's 58! He walked a majority of it but I was SUPER proud to see him run the last quarter mile and cross that finish line. He's so awesome. His time was 40:06.

I had a really good run also. I didn't slow my pace at all during the entire race, didn't even contemplate walking (which I have been guilty of in past 5K events), ran the whole thing and felt amazing. Breathing was fine, legs were fine, no calf cramps, just a good run! My time was 31:39 (gun) 31:34 (chip).

And for the amazing part...I looked up the results later and discovered this in the awards section:


1 Susie Harrison Tulsa OK 49 27:09
2 Angela Large Jenks OK 48 31:39
3 Marcie Stewart Arlington TX 48 31:45

Yep, - I took second place in my age group!!!! That made my whole weekend!! :)
