September 2012, First Race

September 2012, First Race

The planned 5k race was 29 September 2012, so I decided to give my knees a break and only do bike rides for the month.  7 days out, I went out for a 1 mile jog.  Knee felt fine, but I didn’t want to push it.

The race was early on a Saturday morning.  At the fire of a cannon I took off, adrenalin pumping and pushing me to run faster that I ever had before.  I posted a PR 5k time and pace (7:45 min/mile) and felt great.  I was exhausted but the excitement of the “Race” atmosphere made me run fast.  And no knee pain!  It was great.

Going wakeboarding later that day probably didn’t help the knee injury….
