UAB Dollars for Scholars 5k results

Signed up for this race in an attempt to force myself to train for something. However, this attempt failed as I didn’t make time for a single run leading up to the race. Life is just very busy right now, and running is not high on my priority list. I’m trying to come up with other ways to change my approach.

That said, this could have been much worse. I did manage to “run” the whole time, albeit at a very slow pace. I really enjoy this race, as the course is very flat and the environment is always fun. The UAB football team started the race by running the first quarter-mile or so. The weather was wonderful, and there was tons of food afterwards. I also enjoyed the great views of Birmingham that the course had to offer.

I’m trying to find another 5k to sign-up for sometime this summer, so I’ll at least have something still on my calendar should I ever find the time to actually train again.
