On Saturday I have completed my second 5 Miles Run in my life. It was good. Not the weather though. It was raining for most of the run but nobody cared. Over 3700 people gathered in Phoenix Park to face their own challenges and do what it makes to cross the finish line in the best style and with the best time.
I’ve started quite quickly, over passing many people and following one guy for about 2 miles as his speed seems quite reasonable for me. But I left him on the 2nd mile and decided to follow my own speed. Had some water on the 3rd mile (wasn’t really necessary as we were all wet from the rain) and kept running as fast as I could. The 4th mile was the worst but the vision of the “400 meters to go” sign helped me to get to that sign and after that there were really only 400 meters and it was over.
Time 40.40 – quite good considering the weather. And I hoped my chip time will be less than 40 minutes. I wasn’t really running for time but it’s good to bit your own best. Last year it took me 42 minutes and 25 seconds and this year… 39 MINUTES AND 29 SECONDS. I MADE IT!!!
I’m very proud of myself and can’t wait to bit my 10 miles result on Saturday 16th AugustJ There will be two of us then and hopefully the sun will shine for us.
