My race today was fabulous! Beautiful weather, not really cold, but cool, sunny, no wind.
Started the race with my sis, and then I went ahead and got up to pace. I felt great at the start, so I knew I would do well. Checked my time at the first mile marker and was under 11. I thought the mile marker was wrong or something LOL. I pushed a bit, felt good, so I kept the pace. Luckily I had trained intervals and hills, there were some hills on this run. Not huge ones, but I passed quite a few people on the hills – which I found interesting.
One last hill at the end, then 20 yards of flat. I had legs left, so I sprinted the last 20 yards and crossed the finish line in …… old;">31:39!!! 10:12 per mile pace. Last race July I did 44 and change.
I am totally stoked! Funny how I think the course was short or something
My sister did well as well, and had a new PR. We hung around and cheered on the 1/2 marathoners, and half talked about doing it next year in our delerium.
We are going to do another race in October. Now I have to push even harder since I totally blew away my own expectations! Yay!!
