Hale Freezes Over 5k

We got up and headed down to Orem this morning around 8. I've been trying to get past this sinus/head cold that I've had for the past week and woke up with a headache, but I wasn't going to let that stop me. 

We got down there and ran 2 of my 5 miles. I was feeling good. It was cold out and my hands were freezing, but after those 2 miles I didn't need any gloves. The race started out great. I was at a good consistent pace for 2 miles of the race until I hit the hill. There's a massive hill around mile 2 that just kills. I ran half of it and then stopped and walked to the top. That was rough. I finished strong, though! 34.33! Not too bad! I'm pretty proud of myself. :)
Yay, for races!! I'm getting back to running a race every month this year. I love looking forward to a race every month. The next one is a Valentine's Day 5k, I'll run that one with my sister.  
(Who, by the way, got bitten by the running bug. She just signed up for her first marathon!!! GO JOY!)

What a great day! :)
