It was an amazing scene of purple clad women making their way to the starting line.
I met up with 2 friends that I've been running with - Grace and Teresa. We got separated from Grace before the race started and I encouraged Teresa to run at her own speed. This was her first ever 5k and she nailed it!
I ran a good race and finished in 46 minutes, which seems to be my new 5k time. The best part was crossing the finish line and having Grace and Teresa there to cheer me on.
