Road races make running fun! Seriously. I hate running. I get bored and spend all my time thinking about reasons to take a break. But this was my first time participating in an organized run and it was a totally different experience. The energy level is sky high. You don’t even need an iPod to distract you with live bands rocking out and spectators cheering you on.
So if you’re an inexperienced runner and you want to get into the sport, a 5K is the way to go. Here’s another bonus! The road was completely flat today at the at the Stratton-Faxon New Haven Road race. I ran my best time ever of 31:34. It’s not too impressive. But my goal was to beat my previous time AND continue running without taking a break. I achieved both goals.
