I began with one primary goal – to run a sub 8 minute mile. The excitement of the race and the friendly competition helped me get it done. I ran the 5K (3.1 miles) in 24:21 minutes (7:51 pace).
Here are some pictures from this special day.

God has really blessed Kim and me!
|There were 128 registered runners.
This is moments after the horn went off and we were on our way.
|About 24 minutes after the race began,
Kim took a picture of me heading toward the finish line.
|Crossing the finish line. I was checking my watch
to see if the official race clock was correct. HA
|I came in 40th place. There were 128 runners.
|Yep. I’m as tired as I look.|
|The only thing better than completing my first 5K
was enjoying it with my incredible wife!
