Glad you met your secret goal of beating your old coworker. I do that too when I run in to people at races.
I always feel like that after finishing a 5k. I seem to do better if I can keep moving after the race. My theory is that when my heart-rate is high, but I stop right after the race, it takes some time for my heart-rate to settle down and if I don't channel that into movement of some kind, it makes me feel icky.I felt great the whole race, but then I was super nauseous after finishing. We headed down a side street to stretch and I thought I was going to throw up.
I am all about the bling so I try and find races that offer something. My husband likes to tell people I only run races for the swag. He is not into it as much.Nice race recap! This race is pretty close to me so I might run it sometime. It's great that they give finisher medals - not many 5k's near me seem to do that.
