Today was my 3rd 5K of the year. I had more energy this time so my time was better. The weather was really good. It was overcast and about 65 degrees. There wasn’t any rain while I was racing.
The race was in the Tremont neighborhood of Cleveland. One of Tremont’s claims to fame is the house from A Christmas Story, which is now a museum. I took some pictures of the area where the race was held. I’ll post those tomorrow (fingers crossed).
I actually ran my best race by about 2 minutes with a total time of 46:37. It was a smaller race, but I still wasn’t dead last or last in my division. Those are two of my goals for every race.
The next race I’m signed up for isn’t until November and I hope to get my time down just a little bit more. I think I’ve come up with a good strategy. Run to one song and then walk to the next. That’s how I plan to train over the next few months. Then work myself to running to two songs and walking to one. We’ll see how it goes.
My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.
I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.
My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.
