Sunday I ran a 5k with my sister (Kate) and brother-in-law (Chris). This was my first barefoot 5k, and Kate and Chris’ first race ever, which was exciting. I think the last time I ran a 5k was when I was about 9 years old or so. The race started at 9:00am and the temperature was about 48 degrees, I wore some heavy socks while walking around and waiting at the start line for take off. My gimpy foot was still not 100% going into this race but the adrenaline got the best of me, my time was 23:06. I haven’t ran that fast in a long time and tweaked my foot again, so looks like a few more days of rest. I have a 5 mile race on Thanksgiving, then after that I am going to shut it down for a good month of taking it real easy. I need to get this foot back to 100%.
I saw Kate and Chris come in to the finish and both looked really good! Colony Grill is a pizza restaurant that sponsored this race, so it was free pizza and beer at 10:00am for the runners!
