5k

It looks like our plans for our first 5k are changing. One of my coworkers told me about the West End Chili Bowl Classic 5k in Cleveland on February 16. I think we will be running that race. As of now, the forecast is 34 degrees with mostly sunny skies. So apparently when they say chili, they also mean chilly. The chili part is actually at the end of the race, where you get a bowl of West End Tavern chili.

Today was gym day, and I did my first 5k run on the treadmill. OK...it wasn't non-stop 5k. It was a 3.1 mile run, with a couple .25 mi walk breaks added in. But I did maintain a 6.5 mph during all of the running, which is a notch above my normal pace. It took a total of 38 minutes to go those 3.6 miles. I definitely won't be breaking any records at the race. I just hope I can run most of it.
