Today I completed the Westbrook Strong 5K. It was my first 5K and during training, my top time was 34 minutes. I finished the real deal in just over 30 minutes! It was a lot of fun, even though it was down pouring. And of course it supports a great cause.
On my first big run of the season, we ran out 2.5 miles on the green belt path in South Portland, then we strolled back to the car. We came upon a lone running shoe floating in some mineral rich run off from the local landfill. What we have here is natural beauty at its stinkiest.
