I ran a 5K race today and I kind of decided to do it last minute. I figured this weekend was my only chance this month because I am going to be busy for the next few. I am trying to run at least one race every month.

It is my first 5K of the year, the last one I ran was September ’08 and I beat my time by 3 minutes! Today I came in at 24:42, that is a 7:58 pace! I am so excited, I didn’t even know I was capable of that! It was tough competition and my only goal was to come in under 26 minutes. I couldn’t believe how well I did, I really pushed myself though and it was so worth it.

I absolutely love running races, they are so addicting! I always feel like I could’ve done better after I am done, ha! I really feel like if I train hard to run fast then I could totally place and get some kind of medal. I want to win an award so badly! I don’t even really try that hard to run fast, it comes pretty naturally.

I also went hiking with my sister and Scott, it was actually more like wandering in the woods because we ended up taking the wrong trail. It was fun though and I want to go again, but actually make it up to the summit next time. I took a couple good pictures, but I will have to post them later, I don’t feel like it right now.
