|I just wanted to share this cute picture!!|
This 5k is part of a series Fit2Run is doing called Real Florida Run Series that does 5k/10k's through different Florida State parks, all over the state. It really is an awesome thing and there are a couple races near me. This was the first one I participated in. The race took place Sunday night at 6:00 PM
The 5k was a trail run through the back beach marsh of the Lovers Key. It was really peaceful. I just wanted to take it easy running. So as the race stated it was like running through the jungle! I felt so special! The course was all different. It went from grass, to mud, to sand, to grass, to roots. I knew I needed to watch what I was doing during this race. Because one wrong step and I could seriously hurt myself.
Mile one and two went by without notice. There was one water station. I was ok with that since I was taking my time. I was dodging roots, mud and water. I really felt like Indiana Jones! Mile three came around and we where back on the road heading to the finish. I soon passed Kimmi and Jill and waved. I realized that the heat and humidity was killer at the moment. But it didn't matter because I could see the finish. Soon I was running on a bridge towards the finish that was on the beach. The sun was setting int the background. I was quiet beautiful. I stopped for a min to take a picture. Then I ran to the finish.
My finish time was 36:??. I know it was 36- something. Worst 5k time ever. But the course was so beautiful and peaceful. I really enjoyed running it!
