In March, I ran the 5 Kilt Run 5K in Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was a good workout for me. This race really helped show me where I’m at now fitness-wise following my running injury hiatus. I learned I have a long way to go.
My time was a PW (personal worst). I was also rather sore the day after the race. I forgot what it feels like to run hard. I took a spin class Sunday afternoon but really took it easy on myself.

The race was also a great excuse to get out there again, having not raced since November. It’s so easy to do summertime races but it takes some guts to get out there in sub-par March weather. No bibs. The race packets had instructions to put your bib on… “Where’s the bib?” That was to be seen. First non-bib race I have ever done.

The shirts. I was eager to get a technical tee at the 5-Kilt 5K, considering many folks are still giving out cotton at races around the MW (Midwest). I ordered a small and it looked like a dress on me, per usual.
When will race directors realize that they need to offer size XS? The “normal” post race fare was bottled water, apples and bananas. We purchased turkey sandwiches with our tickets. Now I’ll move on and set my eyes on the next race.
