5k PR *POWERED BY BACON*

bacon2

Wahoo! PR by almost 2 minutes! Gun time was 44:41, but I didn’t cross the start until about 52 sec after the gun… so HOLLER for a PR, POWERED BY BACON. I felt pretty good out there. Just kept my head down and kept on trucking. Slow and steady. Only walked through the water stop, […]
