“Did my first 5K race today and was aiming for under 30m but determination and a bit of spur-of-the-moment competitiveness pushed me further and managed to do it in 23! Really proud of myself (:”

Colleen O Run a 5k in less than 25 mins Challenge

Contributorgold Colleen O Well ran a 5k today that benefited my local humane society. Unfortunately two days ago my allergies hit full swing and I've been blowing my nose every two minutes. Completed in 27:04 despite not being able to breathe. Was disqualified though because we took a wrong turn (there were two other 5ks going on at the same time and things weren't labeled well).


Well done Colleen ... there's little worse than running with a blocked nose !

Colleen O and Kevin G encouraged this.


Good time especially without being able to breathe, shame about the disqualification, most misroutes involve running further, organisers should be more sympathetic, especially if poorly marked


Haha yeah it wasn't much further. Instead of crossing a bridge than turning down the river, I turned down the river than crossed a further bridge as I saw the finish line on the other side.

Kevin G encouraged this.
