WE DID IT: no breaks, no stops, no walking! We officially RAN our 5K.
The Chamblee Run and Rotary Roll started and ended infront of the Epps hanger in the Peachtree DeKalb airport. It was a pretty chilly morning, at 54 degrees, and there were a few raindrops along the way. But as soon as we started going, I appreciated the cooler weather. The track led us from the airport, around some neighborhoods and local Brookhaven businesses and back to the hanger. It was a much less challenging course than we are accustom to at Chastain, but you wont hear us complaining about that.
We were finally able to run 3.13 miles without a break: earning ourselves a PR of 29:14. Taking a look back to the ShamRock and Roll post, I realize just how amazing that is. We ran/walked the shamrock course in 34:56. Meaning, we shaved 5:42 off our race time in just 8 weeks time.
Looking forward, there are several good 5K options around Atlanta this summer and we will be definitely be signing up for a few of them! I dont know how much more time we will be able to shave off, but we will be working at shortening times and lengthening distances. Next stop: 10k?
