LA Big 5K

5K completed, hurray! I’ve ben running since the new year and finally ran my first, timed 5K. The LA Big 5K is the official warmup to the LA Marathon (and the start of our routes were the same, which was pretty cool!) Yesterday, I made a trip downtown to the Convention Center to pick up my bib and t-shirt at the Fitness Expo. Today, we ran! The course was around Dodger Stadium. While it was a fun environment, the route was pretty hilly. I was super impressed that, even with the hills, I managed to finish in 32:33! I felt great doing it, too. I had an unofficial goal of finishing under 33 minutes – goal achieved!
