Last Saturday I did the Navy Federal Credit Union 5k before heading to work. The 5k is sponsor by my job and started at 9am right at the headquarters in Vienna, so I had to do it before going to work at 11am. The race was great, 526 people showed up to a cloudy race course throughout the town. Most of the course was a little uphill but nothing uncomfortable. I finished the race in 10th place overall, 3rd in my age group, and first for my job. Received two trophy's and some cash for my achievements and can't wait until next year. With a time of 19:46 not being impressive, but great for my second race back since my knee injury.

In the process of starting a new job and other things I had to put my blog aside and focus on more important things until now. Had to cancel races, training runs, and updating my life for a little over a month but that shouldn’t happen again for a while. Slowly I’m looking to signup for a few races before the end of the year. I’ve done a few 10 milers and my knee is feeling pretty good, just not 100%.
Marathon training starts tomorrow with 7am runs and by the end of the month I should be able to start doing 2 a days. I’ll update soon with any new information that I get, for know check out RunKeeper to see running updates.
