When I’m Not Gardening…I’m Running

Landsdowne YMCA 5K Reindeer Run

What a fun run had by all this past Saturday! I recorded a personal best in the 5K (31:54) coming off of a knee injury this just rocks my world. An 8 am start at a brisk 31 degree temperature was a new challenge for me. In addition, the last time I did street running was the MCM 10K. Despite the cold, the early start time and unfamiliar course; I owned this run, instead of the trail owning me.  Lansdowne is about 45 minutes away from where I live; with an 8am start time, I was on the road at 6:00 am.
