My first 5k

On Thursday night I found out about a 5k race being held locally, so I decided that it was time for me to start doing these. I had a time of 30 minutes in mind before the race. I didn't do a particularly good job of pacing myself, and did 1/2 walk 1/2 jog the last 1/2 mile, but in the end I came in at 25:38, which gave me an average speed of 8 miles per hour, much faster than on the treadmill, but then again, on the treadmill you don't have other people to pace yourself with. All in all, it was a fun morning, my knee held out, and now I'm off to my final game of soccer for the season...
