Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Virtual Run 5k

Well, I convinced the hubby to go out for a run this morning. We did our Virtual 5k for Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary I set out a route for us and we set off. We decided that as we'd been given actual bib numbers we'd tackle this as an actual race rather than run together. He was pushing the girl in her stroller (first time other than a couple of training runs) so he was dealing with all the resistance that adds and it was rather windy today too.

The route was just along a nice trail in the park, but included a couple of hills. Neither of us were thinking we'd be doing an amazing run today as we're both a little stiff from runs earlier in the week.

My finishing time was 3.05miles in 30m15s!!! Woo hoo! Personal Best!!! Okay so it was .05m short of a true 5k, but I'm counting it damnit!! Way back in 2011 when I did my first 2 races (Hot Chocolate 5k in November, Santa Hustle in December) my times were 30m58s (HC) and 30m44s (SH). Maybe I will be able to reach my goal of completing a 5k in under 30minutes this year...
