I smiled a lot:
I ran hard:
And I gave it my all:
|Yes, I'm still heel striking. |
It happens when I run fast and overstride when I see the finish line.
I'm okay with that.
And I made it in 27:35 (official time), 8:53 avg pace, 24/54 people, first in my age group of 4 people (yeah, 4 people) earning me my first and most likely only medal. I thanked every single volunteer I saw and enjoyed the race from start to finish.
It must have been the shoes.
