Today I did the 5km run in Run Melbourne. I didn’t think I’d be quite as chuffed with myself as I was – 5km for me is very short but I ran really well. I was faster than I thought I’d be but didn’t go out too hard either. I was especially proud of the fact that about 2km into the run (down Anderson St) a guy appeared beside me and said “hey you’re doing really well”. He ended up running with me the rest of the way – apparently I was perfectly paced to him. So that was pretty cool.
That’s about it really. Now I’m looking to the next run – maybe even the 15km in the King Valley Challenge in September although I think 10km would be more my distance. I might tag along and be part of the support crew instead!
p.s. thanks to the man and Shell for coming and supporting me!
