Crystal City 5k Fridays

Posted Apr 06 2013 9:43am

Just popping in quickly to share some photos from last night’s 5k! A group of friends and I all ran the first 5k in the Crystal City 5k Fridays series that runs every Friday this April (and again later in the summer, too)!

We could not have had a more beautiful night for a race!

I wasn’t really planning on “racing” this race since I have the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler on Sunday morning… but then Matt and all my friends took off like bullets at the start! Oh, we’re sprinting this?! Okay then…! :)

Matt and my college friends Kathleen and Sarah and I all ran most of the way together, with the others in our group blasting ahead. Props to them – speed demons!!

Whew!

Official results: 3.1 miles in 24:03 for an average pace of 7:45. Obviously racing a 5k a day and a half before wanting to do well in a 10 miler probably wasn’t the best idea, but whatever. Life is for living, right?! Time to bond with my foam roller . :)

After the race, all of us headed to a nearby bar sweaty and with our bibs still pinned to our chests to enjoy some beers, burgers, fries, and each other’s company. Great Friday night!

Have a nice weekend, everyone! I’ll be back Monday with a recap of the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler – best of luck to those of you running it this weekend, too! And a HUGE good luck to my brother, who is running his first full marathon on Sunday!
