Hale Theatre 5k

February 1, 2014

I decided at the last minute this morning to get up and head to Orem (25 minutes away) to race in a 5k race. I knew that if I didn’t do this race I would have a hard time running today with a tempo. Corom was very supportive and encouraged me to go… So I put on my Runner’s Corner racing jersey and racing attire and headed to the race. I met up with a lot of the other racing team members of Runner’s Corner…

We ran a little over 5 miles (40:32) for a nice little run, warmup, to throw in extra miles, etc. before the race. I ran 2 strides before the race (at the starting line) did about 15 to 20 hops on each leg and then waited for the gun. The course was flat, then a good mile down and flat, then a mile and a half up hill to the finish line. I do love hills! I was in 2nd the entire way until the last 1/2 to 3/4 of a mile left. I pulled in 1st and was able to hold on to that spot. I really look up to Amber Andrews (the girl that took 2nd). She is one of my role models and I know that if she was in shape I wouldn’t stand a chance. She has only been running about twice a week! :/

My time was 18:23.0. After my race, Amber, Josse, and I ran back to run our friend Rachelle in from the 10k. She was the 10k top finisher with our friend Rebecca in 2nd. I ran a mile back with Rachelle and continued on for a cool down. The guys all ran great, too.

They did the awards and I won a season (a year) pass to the Hale Theatre (I love plays), a year pass to Thanksgiving Point, and in the raffle… An hour ride for 2 in a Hot Air Balloon! That kind of freaks me out.

We all had a great time and it is fun connecting with all our fellow running friends from around Utah County and Salt Lake…
