i ran the entire thing! the run was in forest park (beautiful!) and the weather was perfect. it took me 40.5 mins but i actually did better than i thought i would. when training, my pace was more around the 14 min mile range (i told you all i run slow!), so i was surprised to see the time when i crossed the finish line. and i wasn't the last person to finish. you all were right, it was much different to run with a group of people, and have people cheering you on along the way. thank you all for the words of encouragement!

now that i know i can run a 5k, maybe i can focus on running my next one at a slightly more respectable pace ;-)

oh, and in case you were wondering, mike ran it in just under 27 mins. i was impressed! i have a long ways to go if i want to be able to run with him.

That's so great!! Good job! I'm running mine on May 16, so reading this was encouraging. The last time I timed myself it took me 10.5 minutes to run a mile... no clue if that's good or not. Ha! Both of my sisters-in-law ran a half marathon today and they want me to do one eventually... ummm... don't know if I'm that committed (or crazy)!! Anyway, Congratulations :)
