Season in review - running Nashville 5k races

It's actually pretty amazing I ran a PR with a slight knee strain. There is no doubt that in a week or 10 days it'll feel 100% and I will be tempted to run. Coach ruined his knee by being stubborn and trying to train through minor pain and he doesn't want to see me do the same. That's why he was pretty adamant about giving it at least 3 full weeks. I'm looking forward to tomorrow, my first day in the pool swimming laps.

The reason I wanted to run in the first place was not to win, but to be fit and be able to run all my life. I did enjoy the races but no point in doing it again until I'm 100%. So, when many are getting geared up for the summer running season, I'm quitting!

As a brand new distance runner, it was a decent "rookie season." I know I'll never be an elite runner, but I'm happy to have participated and to have improved with every race. I ran eight 5ks in just over four months.

My season in review:

Age Group GOLD MEDALS - '08:
(45-49)

Nashville Zoo Run 5K
Runnin' to Beat the Blues 5K, Nashville
Runnin' to Beat the Blues Mile (overall Gold)
Nashville Purity 5k

Other Awards - '07:

Second Prize - Jingle Bell 5K, Nashville
Third Prize - Frostbite 5K, Hendersonville

5K personal record - 19:36

You're just afraid to train in the heat, admit it. :P I'm kidding! I hope you do some races later this summer/early Fall. I still think you should try a 10k but don't listen to me. I make too many crazy "suggestions". :P
