I DID IT! I finally broke 22 minutes on the 5k run (3.1 miles). On Sunday, I ran the Run for the Pumpkins 5k here in Knoxville and finish in a time of 21:56. I was about dying at the end, but I knew that I was doing really well, so I sucked it up and kept plugging. Not only that but I finished 2nd in my age group, and there were FIVE people total. None of this get an award by default (though I will take those), but I actually performed real well. So now I have one more 5k race (Nov 2nd) before the marathon (Nov 9th) and hopefully I can carry this performance onto these other races.
School is going well, but keeping me busy. No real news on that front.
