This was a big weekend for me. After multiple knee-dislocations, surgery, many months of physical therapy, and finally re-learning how to run, I officially ran my first 5K on Sunday!!
The race in question was the fabulous Superhero 5K in Central Square, Cambridge. Everyone dressed up, it was a lot of fun. (You can see some of the costumes here.) I dressed up as Flashdance (get it? get it?). OK, wow, coincidentally the Flashdance song just started playing on my computer. WEIRD. Anyway. Here I am practicing my official Flashdance pose pre-race:
My only real goal was to run the entire race without stopping, which I did. My secondary secret goal was to run it in under 40 minutes, which I also did! So yes, I spent most of Sunday afternoon feeling very satisfied with myself. Hooray running!
I’m not sure what’s next, but the race was so much fun that something will be next. Anyone near Boston have any suggestions?
