This year Joy and I took the bold move of signing up for the LA Kings 5k which happened this past weekend which is the earliest in the year that we’ve run a 5k. Usually we have to wait until the spring to have our legs, but we were confident to get started in the year early. In December Joy and I bought the 2 year membership to 24 hour fitness and have been using it at a very consistent rate since we got them.
It was a rainy morning which i hoped would’ve moved on by race time, but i think it actually got worse throughout the run. The course weaved through the high rise condos and was a two lapper that started and ended next to the Staples Center. We had to push ourselves to keep running and ended up with a time of 29:30 that included a stoppage to tie my shoe laces. About the time we finished the race the rain had let up, and my feet felt like they were in a swimming pool in my shoes.
As part of the SWAG we got a free ticket to that night’s game vs. the Colorado Avalanche, but only stayed until the end of the 1st period because we were getting tired, and the people in front of us were annoying.
Next up on our schedule is the Hollywood 5k in April, so come along and run!
