Fragile X 5K

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!

I’m so happy we did it.  We didn’t come even close to placing obviously but I was very pleased with how we did considering we’ve only been running for the last 10 weeks.

I think we placed 29 and 30 err…make that 39 and 40 overall, Duhdee was the #11 male in his age bracket and I was #10 woman in mine.  Also, Duhdee appeared to be the first person to finish who was pushing a stroller, lol.  I think that extra 45 lbs. he was pushing deserves some extra credit 😉

We’re now going to drop down to only 2 runs/week for the winter.  We’re going to try to improve our times.  We finished in a little over 30 minutes, the first place runner finished in a little over 15 minutes.  Ouch!

    omg…that is amazing. I’m thinking of doing your 5k run plan you posted a long time ago. I like a routine plan :).

    I highly recommend the Couch to 5K plan. We went from never running to running a 5K in such a short time period. The best part was that I was only sore during the first week! I expected it to be miserable but we built up so gradually that it ended up not being very hard at all.

    I still think you’re crazy, but I am very excited for you! Good work! And I’m also relieved to hear that Monkey’s new classroom is going well. Hooray!

    Oops, we were 39 and 40! I knew I should have waited to post this! lol…I totally don’t understand the results beyond that. 🙂
