13 Jun Team Steele Dominates 5K
This 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…
