Finished my first 5K run through Central Park

Posted by Kirby Turner on June 27, 2002

Believe it or not I finished the 5K run [officially 3.5 miles] through Central Park. I am excited that I did it. And I finished in 35 minutes!

There were tons of other participates in the run, which made it hard at times. I had to zig-zag through crowds of people throughout the run. My friend Dave and I ran together, which was nice. And he helped motivate me in the last quarter mile when I would have preferred walking.

In the end, I am glad I did the run. Of course my leg injury seems to have gotten worse as a result and I am having trouble walking today. And walking is a very common practice for most New Yorkers so it totally sucks. But I’m still glad I did it.
