I didn't "rack" my back yesterday when most of the other ladies from the office did, so I wanted to get there when the transition area opened this morning to do that and get ready. Did I really need to be there at 5:45 when the race started at 7:00 and I wasn't even doing the swim that came first? No. But I get paranoid like that.
My goal was to be as close to 1 hour as possible (or under, but I knew that'd be pretty optimistic) for the 13.5 miles. I ended up at about 1 hour and 5 minutes, so that was pretty decent!

I'm toying with the idea of training to do a 5K in the fall (I have the Laveen Turkey Trot in mind). I found a training plan online titled "The Couch-to-5K Running Plan." Sounds like my kind of training plan.
