It wasn’t supposed to happen. I had no plans of racing – literally, didn’t even think I’d go to the race, let alone pay for it, put on a bib number, and run. But I did. I mean really, I was hoping to run 20 minutes for the 5k. That would have been around 6:40 pace and I would have been so excited about it.
My training is non-existent. With coaching going so well, I’ve decided that it is more important for my athletes to run fast rather than for me to run fast. And I’m fine with that.
And then the gun went off. And it was like I was back in racing shape. Back trying to win a race. And I just got going. The competitive juices started flowing and before I knew it I was done. And I came in first. And I was beyond shocked at the time. And then Carly won for the women.
Results are here.
In the great words of T-Swift:
“I never miss a beat
I’m lightning on my feet
And that’s what they don’t see”
