That's my time from last Saturday's Rock N Stroll 5K :) Sufficient to say, I did indeed finish, and at the quickest pace and farthest distance I have so far run. I beat my stated goal of finishing under 39 minutes. Plus I got a T-shirt, so it was great all around, aside from the humidity, which was a bit on the overdone side.
In case you were wondering, here was my playlist :)
Getchoo by Weezer
Seether by Veruca Salt
Dashboard by Modest Mouse
One Engine by The Decemberists
Simple Song by The Shins
Self Esteem by Offspring
So What'cha Want by The Beastie Boys
Soul Meets Body by Death Cab for Cutie
Verse Chorus Verse by Nirvana
Malibu by Hole
Greater Omaha by The Desaparecidos
Again, heavy on the 1990's alt-rock ;)
Next up, the Cheetah Chase 5K this coming Saturday.
A much more challenging course through the hills of our beloved Hillcrest neighborhood. Here's the route, which notably does not show the aforementioned hills:
I will be looking to merely finish, not set any speed record on this one, as my test-run of 2.5 miles of the course yesterday left me totally worn out. On the plus side, the weather this Saturday morning should be much better than it has been lately, so that will help out my fitness and stamina immensely.
