Rove the Cove 5k

My day began with my alarm going off approximately 8:00 a.m. I quickly got ready for the race and drove to the race park with my new roommate, Eden.

Our pre-race morning included registering, getting t-shirts, having performance power bars, and warming up.

The race was supposed to begin at 9:30 a.m., however it didn’t start until 9:45 am. I ran the 5k course in 23:12 and was the 23 overall runner out of 137 runners. I placed 5th among all female runners at the race.

Afterwards, we enjoyed participating in a raffle and I won a 50 dollar gift certificate to a dentist office while my roommate won free pizza!

The weather was beautiful and was glad that I decided to participate in Rove the Cove 5k.

Afterwards, we enjoyed Tropical smoothies.
