OC 5K – May 6, 2012

I did the OC 5k at the Orange County Fairgrounds on May 6, 2012. It just happened to be my birthday as well as my 2nd 5k of the year. Unfortunately, it ended up NOT being a true 5k. It was only 2.68 miles per my Garmin. Apprantly, they forgot to open up part of the course (the part that was supposed to take us through the ampitheater) and so it shorted the race. A LOT! I was like, there is NO way I finished in under 34 minutes without having trained. Oh well. Lesson learned. Always wear my garmin and make sure the route is correct! As compensation, we are getting a free entry into next years 5k.  So I know what I’m doing on May 5, 2013. Haha! Here are my stats (for what it’s worth):

Time: 33:38
Overall: 950/1606
Age Group: 72/127
