That title’s for you Cross Country! :D
But really, I do have a race report and it does include a PR!
Last night I ran for 45 minutes at the gym. First run since the 1/2. It was painful. Slow, and painful.
The reason I did this was because I didn’t want my race tonight to be the first run since the 1/2. That, and I want to keep up my fitness! I ran the Cinco de Mayo run put on by a running store here in town. I thought I was going to be by my lonesome. But after texting and calling around, I got four people to do it with me! It was a casual race. We did have numbers but no chips, no real start line. By the time we got back there was a clock up though. We all started it together then thinned out. I ended up running it with a gal I’d met a few times before. Amy. Wende ended up running most of it by herself, I think. And Ann and Laura ended up finishing mostly together at the end. I knew we were running fast. Faster than I usually run comfortably. But that’s the idea when you’re trying to pr. I guess. In the end I told Amy to pull ahead and go for it. We were both trying to break 30minutes. I watched the clock flip over to 30 and lost a little steam. Bummer. I think I ended up finishing about 30:17. Still a PR and SO CLOSE to 29:xx. Sometime. I think I feel like it’s getting closer. This race, for instance, was 3 days after my 1/2 and I still ran a PR! YAY!
Ann, Me, Wende, Laura (her first race, and she rocked it!), and Amy.
Here’s a picture of me finishing that Maverick 4K a few weekends ago. Don’t I look thrilled to be done? :D
