5K Official Results–The Play Brigade 5K 10/14/2017

5K official results:


Nalida: 42:58

I just wanted us to finish in the 90 minutes we were given. I’m still a slow runner and sometimes I slow Nini down and at other times encourage her to keep going and not peter out. πŸ™‚ Honestly, she “guided” me for most of the race because she’s usually a step ahead and I’m saying “over to the right a bit, left, right.” πŸ™‚ But right near the finish line I encouraged her when she got really tired. I said “Nini, I can see the Finish Line! That big blue sign ahead! Do you hear them cheering?! That’s because we’re so close to the finish line. We can’t stop running now can we?! Let’s do this.” And just like that, Nini perked up and even picked up speed. So we have official numbers and I’m so proud of Nini!! But the numbers can’t explain the hard work and where we came from to even get on this race course. I’m eternally grateful.
