Last year, this was my first big 5K. This year, it is my sister-in-law’s first 5K – that’s pretty cool! Last year I finished in 31 minutes & 52 seconds, and I was thrilled with that. This year I wanted to be under 30 minutes. I made it in 27:33, and I am thrilled with that too! That is an improvement of 4 minutes and 19 seconds since last year! I was 6th in my age group (out of 18). I really like this race. It is well organized with a unique finish. It was also a lot of fun to have people to hang with before and after the race!
