My finish photo can be found here.
I'd post it here, but if I try to copy it it tells me I'm a thief.
Also, my official stats are as follows: 23:35 was my official time.
Overall I was 34th place. For the men I placed 31st. For age 25-29 I placed 4th. 4TH! One spot away from winning a prize!!! Granted, I would have needed to run 1:51 faster to beat the next guy in my age group, but still. It's the thought that I was that close. Next year, I promise to be better.

Well, I finally ran my 5k this weekend, and I'm pleased with my result. I had planned on coming in at about 25 minutes, based off some workouts recently.
As you can see, I was pretty much bottled lightning. So fast that the camera couldn't capture me. In reality, Lisa was borrowing her friends camera and it didn't perform as admirably as one would hope. But it mostly got the job done. My watch clocked me at 23:37, so I was about a minute and a half faster than I planned. Woohoo!! I actually really enjoyed the course, with one exception. There is a really small hill at the end you turn a corner and you have literally 25 meters to go, so if you don't know the course very well, you have a hard time knowing when exactly to give a last good push. But oh well. Maybe next year.

Most of you who read this probably know already, but I'm the new EQP in my ward. After a month of waiting, it finally became official today. Weird, scary, exciting. And that's pretty much all I have to say on that.
