Race Report: Road Race Series 5 Miler
Well, even though I will not be a Road Warrior once this Road Race Series is over, I still paid my $75 for 10 races and I'd like to see them through. Yesterday was the 2nd 5 mile race and although it was pretty uneventful, it was an extremely pleasant race. First of all, the weather was AWESOME! I was actually chilly in my t-shirt and shorts while waiting for the gun to go off. It felt like fall and oh how I've missed the fall. Fall running is THE BEST, isn't it? (Can I get an amen?) It was perfect running weather. Secondly, I felt great! You know how sometimes when you run, you just feel like you are floating through the air or running in the clouds? That's how I felt...like I wasn't aware of my body...nothing hurt or bothered me and the hills on the course (and it was pretty hilly) didn't even feel like hills. It seemed like I was running for 5 minutes...it just flew by! I didn't run fast...in fact, I ran slower than usual (my time was 53:26) but I didn't care. I was just loving running. I love running!
