Despite the cold and my lingering illness, I pushed through and gave it my all. The scenic course through the park provided motivation to keep pushing, and the support from fellow runners kept me going. While I may not have reached my goal time, I am proud of my effort and determination. I know that with more training and perseverance, I will eventually break that 30-minute mark. Until then. The official time for the Flannel 5k was 31:05
