Once again I braved a chilly October morning in order to attend Oviedo Historic Society’s The Rising 5k. I woke up before the sun rose and trudged out to downtown Oviedo. I was entirely unprepared and out of shape for this run but I wanted to do it and complete it. My unofficial time was 44:12 (for 3.16 miles). That’s three minutes slower than last year and four and a half minutes slower than the previous year. I also had numbness in my right foot and pain/discomfort in my left Achilles’ tendon. But I completed the run.
Official time: 44:25.74
