Running my first 5k in ages!

I used to run 5k’s pretty often when I played lacrosse in high school. Back then, three miles was no problem, didn’t even get out of breath. I fell off the wagon a bit in college when time was short and I had to choose between a run and getting that reading done for class (believe me, the reading-on-elliptical skills you build at Harvard are pretty amazing).  That’s why I’m pretty psyched to be running the Solar Empowerment 5k that my company Gym-Pact is sponsoring.  The proceeds go toward building energy technology for Mali villages.

Results: 26:09 time, 54th place!  Some pictures of my day:

  1. Found your new blog! It wasn’t difficult since fb gave me a link -_-;; It must be awesome to be able to run a marathon! The only one I ever did was in high school and I walked the whole thing while chatting, lol…
