A while ago I posted this about my troubles with running.
Well, in the end I decided not to attempt the half-marathon in fear that I would just over-do it and injure myself.
The Lansing Marathon 5k was today though and it was so much fun. It was organized by Playmakers and they did a fantastic job. As well as the local police who were out in full force today to make everyone feel safe.
I am pretty happy with my results. It wasn’t a PR for me, but considering how ill I have been, I am satisfied I did my best. I finished in 33:37 and 124 out of 211 runners.
Also, I was pleasantly surprised that they were handing out medals to all the 5k finishers as well! And a very nice T-shirt. They went with lime green which is a nice change from the tons of white race T-shirts I have!
All in all, it was a great race. The course was really fun and well organized. There was also an expo at the Lansing Center where they were giving away free massages. I definitely took advantage of that! Score!
I’ll be spectating the Half-Marathon and Marathon tomorrow (a friend is running the half). So I’ll be back tomorrow with more pictures!
