Team Steele Dominates 5K

Team Steele Dominates 5K

102_6560This is the fist of victory for our triumphant finish of our first 5K together.

James: 3rd 5K. 1st in age group. 6th overall. Time of 19:35.

Sarah: 1st 5K. 3rd in age group. 105th overall. :) Time of 27:34.

James: I have loved running these past many months! Way to go, John Ditmer, for encouraging me to run. This 5K I ran much faster than anticipated. However, mile three was rough and if I had much more in my stomach it would be all over the board walk near the finish line. Way to go endorphins to make up for that sick feeling.

Sarah: My first mile was the fastest one I’ve run so far–7:45! It was amazing to me how much faster I ran with so many people around me. And seriously, I contemplated at great lenth (27:34, to be precise) the correlations to our walk with Christ and with each other. James has talked about it a lot since he started running; I think I’m finally feeling it myself! What a cool experience. And placing gets you hooked. At least, competitive people like me! Doing it again next weekend…

    Thanks for the comments you two! Marathon is definitely on my goal list. I was wanting to run the Chicago marathon in October. However, registration is closed already! I am planning on running it in 2010. It would rock to run the Twin Cities marathon with you. I will check out the details on that.
