5K PR and upcoming travel

Yesterday, Chris, Ryan, Caitlin and I ran the Greater Oviedo 5K which we have run several years in a row.  The race was wonderful as always, although starting at 7:30 was bit late for this Florida heat, in my opinion.  One of my goals for this year was a sub 27 minute 5K, and according to my Garmy I ran 3.12 miles in 26:59!  I met my goal just barely, but I am still so excited!  Unfortunately, they seemed to have an issue with the timing chips, because according to mine I ran the 5K in 23:51, and I know that is not accurate. 

Other than the race, I have been keeping up with my goal of running three days a week (see my DailyMile widget) and doing arm and ab work-outs.  I have also been working a lot to get ahead before my trip.  I am flying to Denver on Saturday to present at a conference on Monday.  I fly back Monday night only to fly out to Italy Thursday night (EEK!!!).  And now, at the end of the month of June, it looks like I will be flying out to L.A. to run samples in a laboratory out there.  I am soooo excited for all three trips!  I cannot wait to share my exciting trips with you! 

I hope that you all are doing wonderful!  Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!


  1. Congrats on your PR!!!! :)

    Be safe and enjoy your trips. It sounds so exciting!!

  2. Congratulations on the PR!!! Trimming even a few seconds off of a 5k is pretty tough. Take lots of pictures on your trips...I'm traveling vicariously through you.

  3. Congrats on a GREAT 5k!!! PRs are always so fun and exciting.
