New 5K age 30

My overall 5k PR is 30:39 (9:53).
This morning though I ran faster than I did in last years 4th of July run, setting a new post-age-30 PR. No bad when you consider I've gained and lost 50 pounds since running that 5k in July 2008 due to my pregnancy and delivery of a large 8lb 12 oz girl.

July 4th, 2008 my time was: 32:45 (10:33)
April 13th, 2008 my time was: 35:17 (11:21)
This morning my time was: 32:31 (10:25/mile)
1st 5k back in 2003 was: 32:54 (10:37_

I'm especially proud that I ran the first mile in 9:59. I like seeing that 9.

By the 4th of July run I should be closer to 10 minute miles (if not faster) and 20 pounds lighter! Perhaps I'll even beat 30 minutes.
