Signed Up For My First 5K - Run Lucky 5K

I registered for the Run Lucky 5K today. My first official race! I'm pretty excited about it.

My wife finally got me into running and I'm starting to enjoy it a lot more. I do most of my running on the treadmill, but I do get outside every now and then to run with my wife.

The race is Sunday, March 11th at 2PM.

Finished My First Official 5K Race - Run Lucky 5K in OKC

I started running back in the Fall of 2011. My wife runs marathons and half marathons, and she had been trying to get me to run for quite some time. I figured that I'll never do a marathon, but the 5K was doable. When I found out that her dad and brother had started running to train for races, I thought that would be a cool challenge.

I thought the Run Lucky 5K was going to be a rainy, miserable race this year. But the rains stopped in time. The weather was perfect for running at just under 50 degrees and cloudy enough to keep away the sun's heat. Here are my official 5K race results.

Official results:

  • Overall finish: 151/606
  • Age Division finish: 16/61 (40)
  • Gun Time: 25:27
  • Pace: 5:06
  • Chip Time: 24:37
  • Bib #: 1033
