So, by now you know Dr. Zager didn’t think it was a good idea for me to run the 5K.
I’m going to be totally honest. I toyed with the idea of selective hearing. I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m kind of stubborn. My husband, who is well aware of how I am, told me it was completely up to me.
In the end, I listened to the doctor because it was so freaking hot. The race is actually in Yankee Stadium. Unlike a “normal” 5K, not everyone can start at the same time, so they set up heats based on your per mile time. We started at noon. 12 PM. It was 91% humidity in the Bronx, and probably close to 90 degrees.
We did run across the finish line, though.
I have no idea what my official time was, nor can I get my iPod to sync with iTunes right now so I can plug it in to Dailymile. But that doesn’t matter. We finished it, and that was the most important thing to me.
I’m so grateful to the people who walked it with me. Amy and Crystal are awesome friends. Maybe next year, we can actually run it. [But OMG, someone needs to suggest taking the stairs out of the course to them. OUCH.]
No pictures of us yet, but this is the swag we all got.
