a few days before my birthday last march, i ran another 5K. i just got the certificate by post.
oh, ha! i clocked in at 39 minutes. i didn't even do enough training before the run. as always, the main motivation was to avoid the crowds because of the (ahem!) "air pollution". hehe. apparently, the first place winner finished in about 15 minutes. how she did that, i couldn't figure out. if she was at the first lane on the starting line and really sprinted the whole time, maybe?
my next run is a 5.6k this may. and i've been trying to squeeze in some running time in the mornings. let's see how i'll fare on that one.
