Race Recap: Zoo Run Run 5K + Giveaway Winner!!!

I had BIG PLANS for chasing my sub-30 5K goals this fall and 4 different 5Ks picked out to shoot for my PR, one of which was this morning, The "Zoo Run Run 5K" which involved running through a nearby zoo.  Little did I know I would nail my sub-30 on the first try last week!  Instead of trying to run yet another PR, I decided to just have fun this race and run with my favorite 5K buddy Katy.
I'm not going to do a long race recap because the race was pretty darn uneventful, but we ran negative splits, saw some animals, and generally had a fun race finishing in 33:06.  Today did mark, however, the first run this season when I was actually cold!!!  I wasn't thinking when I packed my bag last night before crashing at my friend's house, and didn't pack gloves--in fact, I'm lucky I threw in the long sleeved shirt at the last minute!!  I'm loving fall weather lately, but part of me can't be too happy about it because fall really means that winter, my MOST HATED time of year, is right around the corner...oh well.  Anyways, a fun race overall :)
