I admire those of you who run half marathons and full marathons because sometimes 3.1 miles feels like 3000! I have my good days and bad days. Some days I run faster, some days I run slower, some days I run farther, and I never really know why!

So, I was a bit apprehensive for this 5k, however, the reason I run is not to win a tiny trophy. Plus, there was free pancakes and bacon at the finish line.
I did have a good time, as always and my pace was better than it has been. It was definitely nowhere near my best, but, hey, you can't PR every time. I'm hoping to PR next year at the China Grove 5k but no pressure!
I actually finished 2nd place in my age group so I was happy about that and I was happy for the bacon!
What's your reason to run? Do you put pressure on yourself?
