During the week of October 14-21, you were to run a 5k anywhere of your choice. Jess even hosted an actual run in her hometown. It would have been a blast to be there!
I chose to do my run Thursday night after work at one of my favorite places to run - the Big Creek Greenway Trailhead. I stretched and then headed out to start my run.
The run started out pretty decent, but soon after my ankles began hurting every time I took a step. I'm not sure if they're just weak or if maybe my shoes are starting to show some wear. They've never bothered me before this run.
I did pretty decent, not walking too much during my run intervals but the pain in my ankles really slowed me down. It definitely wasn't my best time, but it wasn't my worst, either.
She had tons of amazing sponsors for this race, and she's doing a raffle for everyone that participated to possibly win some awesome prizes! Can't wait to see if I might have won :)
We had a virtual race packet, too, complete with lots of coupon codes for various websites. I have heard about Injinji socks from other bloggers, and they were doing a special on some pink toe socks, so I bought them!
I'm already looking forward to this race next year :)
Until next time,
