Do you see me?  I am in row 30, 7th from the left (just kidding :)

Well, I was not alone for my first 5K.  There were 30,000 people!  Amazing!  Everything went so smoothly for such a big crowd.  We got the best parking spot, were at the front of the line so were the first wave sent out (they sent out 1500 people every 5 minutes) and I managed to run all but about 3 minutes of the race.  There was a hill at the end that I was not expecting since it was in the parking lot of Qualcom Stadium.  Who knew stadium parking lots had hills?  Overall, a great experience and I am looking forward to my next one.  Hopefully one that I can run the entire way!  If a 5K is something you would like to try some day, I definitely recommend the Couch to 5K program.  You can find all the info HERE.
