Run for Rhodes #Anywhere 5k

I know I keep saying I’m not running any races this year due to my knee issue, BUT… Virtual races don’t count!! Why not? you make ask…  Well, because you can run a virtual race as slow as you’d like and still participate and feel good about it!!  At least that’s how I feel about them! :)  Today I was able to participate in the Run for Rhodes #Anywhere 5k

Run for Rhodes #Anywhere 5k is in honor of Dustin Rhodes, a 28 year old runner who is 1 of only 200 people in their 20s in the whole world diagnosed with a severe brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme. To read more you can click Here.  This race is to raise awareness and donations or cards for Dustin.  Like I said… there’s still time left to participate so head on over and sign up!! :)

Anyways… so I ran my race on the treadmill and did a slow 3.1 miles trying to focus on form and keep my hips from collapsing and ended up running my 5k in 33:22.  I’ll take it!! Afterwards I stretched for about a half hour (yeah almost as long as it took me to run the 5k lol) and *knock on wood* my knee feels like it is slowly but surely getting better… hopefully!  We shall see! Sorry for the boring race recap, but it is what it is ;)

    1. I'm so glad your race went better than expected!!
      Knee issues are the worst! I've been dealing with mine for almost a year and refuse to pay a doctor...
      What are your knee issues that you're dealing with? I hope it gets better soon!
