Yay!!!  I finally completed a 5K in less than 30 minutes!  I’m getting faster!

Maybe it’s the new shoes… On Saturday, I went to this nice little athletic shoe store in Newtown, PA and, on the salesperson’s recommendation, bought a pair of Brooks’ PureFlow running shoes.  These shoes are great!  They’re light and responsive with enough cushioning to prevent leg pain or discomfort.  I did feel a little ache in my left knee and ankle in the middle of mile 6, but I think that’s because I didn’t tighten the shoes enough.

I was also feeling a lot better today because my cold is almost gone… I just had to deal with a little residual mucus during the run.  I had to keep using my sweatband to wipe my runny nose (I know, I know — It’s gross).  Despite this, I set new PRs for running a 5K and a 10K.   I just have to keep it up!
