I have a new found respect for runners that can complete a 5K without slowing up, like some of the competitors at the Watermelon 5K, but I have to say, walking in a 5K wasn’t THAT bad. Rebecca Turner, the host of Good Things on Supertalk from 2-3 PM each week day, set a pace for me, and helped me finish the full 5K in under an hour! I honestly expected it to be worse than it was, and besides the humidity and rapidly increasing temperatures, it was almost a pleasant stroll on the not-so-pleasant roads of Jackson. I will definitely have to try my hand at another 5K in the not-so-distant future!
