My first 8k

So yesterday morning at 7.30 am, I was standing at the start line of the July 4th celebratory 8k run at Belle Haven Park and Marina, just south of Alexandria, VA. Exactly 42 minutes later I crossed the finish line. While my average time was a little slower than my time for the 5k I did a few weeks earlier, some of that was due to the queue at the 1/2 way line for water. Rather than having multiple volunteers, or pre-filled cups of water sitting on a table, there was one volunteer who was filling the cups on request. This probably slowed me down for a minute, as I did want a drink prior to resuming the race. Anyway, 42 minutes is still a time that I'm happy with :)
