2nd 5k of the Day is History

Bonnie and I ran in the Bricktown Blaze 5k this afternoon. It was warm, in the low 80's by race time I think. Anyway we finished at the same time 37:37, it was another PR for Bonnie...woohoo. She was getting very tired by the end though and did not believe she would beat the time of her previous 5k, but I believe she beat her time by almost a minute. Cheers to her. The finish line was really cool because it was inside the minor league baseball park that is in Oklahoma City. Some of the players actually were at the finish to greet us, even those of us finishing at the back of the pack, it made it special.

As for me and completing two 5k races in one day, I feel great. No new pains or aches from either race. I'm proud of my effort from this morning. I've cut almost 3 full minutes off my first 5k that I ran back on the first weekend of March. I would like to think with some serious training I can get my 5k race times under 30 minutes by the end of the year.

I will see what pics that Bonnie took this morning and see if I can get one or two posted either later tonight or tomorrow sometime.
