Running Report

I've re-entered the running scene, and it is going quite well. I am finally fully recovered after foot surgery last year. On June 6, I ran the United Run for the Zoo 10K at Lincoln Park Zoo for the first time and finished in 58:56. Today I ran the Bourbonnais Friendship Festival 5K and finished in 28:38, placing second in my age group. Was it ever hot and humid out there today! But as soon as the race was over, a storm blew in with thunder, lightning, and the whole works, and the awards ceremony had to be moved inside. I was certainly thankful for my friend Pat offering me a ride home as I had walked to the race.

Now my goal is to find a 5K for next weekend and to break 28 minutes. I want to be running in the 25 minute range by the end of the summer.
