I did my 5k today, in some ewhere around 30 minutes, but the official results haven't yet been posted*. It took me a while to get across the start line, but due to some technology I don't fully understand, my bib contained a device that sorts all those details out. This also enabled a dude at the finish line with a microphone to congratulate me by name as I went past. Kind of amazing!

Overall it went well, though I started to pull out the stops way too early. When I thought I was almost at the end, I really wasn't. So when the actual end came, I had pretty much nothing left. Also, I had some technical difficulties with my ipod. When I turned it on as the race started, it was playing some song that was definitely not part of my painstakingly crafted 32-minute playlist. After some hasty weighing of pros and cons, I decided I really really needed those particular songs, so pulled it out and fiddled with it while trying to keep running. During this fiddling, I also lost the elastic band that I use to hold it onto my bra strap, so ended up just stuffing it down my bra. I probably lost some time with all that, but I still think it was the right decision. I needs my musics.

*ETA: The results are in–I came 117th out of 214 overall (and of the women, 48th out of 124). Pretty ok for a noob, I'd say. My time was 30:28.

So here are pics of me starting and finishing (both pretty lousy).
But you can see that I was at least still smiling by the end. And beating that lady on the right.
