First 5k

So over a month ago I ran my first 5k race down by the ocean. The first picture is at the starting line 15 minutes before the start. It was a cold March day and soon got colder when the wind picked up.
I started out in the pack of leaders and kept them in sight as I came up to the last mile. The last mile , which was on the boardwalk, was into 25mph winds. COLD.. My hands starting to get numb and my legs lost all strength. I managed to finish 11th out of about 135 which was a pleasant suprise. This being my first short race, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can push myself a little harder pace-wise and not have to take the entire day off to feed my race hunger.
