Tami and I ran in the 5k High Speed Pursuit last Saturday. I finished and received the finishers medal. The medal is what it is all about according to my sister. My road training didn't prepare me for running on dirt roads. I ended up with shin splints about 1.5 miles into my run. I finished the race walking/running. I was disappointed not to make it running all the way again. I don't have shin splint issues when I am running at home! Emily had me up every hour from about 4am to 6am and so I was not rested as much as I should have been. I really want to make it running an entire 5k! So I now I have 3 races coming up that I want to do. I just have to decide which one!
