09.20.2008 – First 5k

The rest of the race I attempted to do intervals, but spent a good majority walking due to my imminent bowel movements. Second mile – 24:30. Still not too terrible. Finished with a time of 39:30. Last quarter of a mile I booked it as fast as I could cause I could see the finish line. I was ready to cross it and keep running to the nearest bathroom. When I ran, I didn’t feel tired…… Only thing bothering me was the possible prairie dog situation.

Had I not been thwarted by my bowels, I could’ve broken 36:00 time goal. Next time I will.
