Pumpkins in the Park 5K

This morning, my daughter and I braved the cold 38°F misty weather to compete in our first Pumpkins in the Park 5K!

I finished with a personal best time of 24:55, which put me at:

  • 80 of 763 overall
  • 11 of 36 in male 40 to 44 age group, and
  • 54 of 278 amongst all males

I’m quite pleased with my performance today, as well as Ani’s — she had a personal best for a 5K as well! 💪

This, despite the weather (or, maybe in some way it was enhanced by the miserable weather!), was great fun! It is incredibly inspiring seeing people of all ages and abilities running and walking together.

Next up for races, the Webster Turkey Trot (4.4 miles) on Thanksgiving Day, and the Reindeer Run 5K in mid December! I think I’m getting hooked on this running thing. 😄
