Today was my first race of 2014 and my first race of my new goal!
Brita Resolution Run – 5km (1 of 6) 39:50!
Here I am before and after the run! There is a funny story with this race. I was originally signed up for the 10km run but was a bit concerned about how it would affect my around the bay race training this weekend, so was torn about whether to do 5km or 10km. This race is not chip timed so swapping races would have been fairly easy for me. However, when I read the times it said 12pm. So at 10:30am this morning I started to get ready, only to realize that the 10km race actually began at 10am and the 5km walk started at 12pm. So my race was already half an hour in and I was 25 minutes from the place. Opps! Since my coach and official person of approving oddities in my Factors of 30 races was on a plane to Cuba, I let Steve make the call. He agreed, that slapping on my race number and running 5km around our house WOULD count in my factors of 30 races, since I did pay for the race, and my name is on their site, and since there is no chip timing there are no results online to confirm it anyway.
So I am happy to report that as of January 1st, I have completed 1/12 of my Factors of 30 races, and am already registered for one of the 15km races, and the 30km race!
