My First Ever 8K Road Race
Tuesday, November 29, 2011
If you asked me a year ago if I could run the entire course for an 8K I would have said no way. I don't think I would have said I wouldn't or couldn't do it but I probably would have said I would try but probably would walk most of it. Instead of walking, I ran! I ran the whole course and I did it faster than I thought I could.
I have surpassed my expectations so far this year and I am looking for more. In 2011 alone, I have ran 2 trail races, 4 5Ks and now 1 8K! My goals are to increase my mileage and my speed. I would love to break 30minutes for a 5K and want to run a 10K, 15K and even a half-marathon!
I'm trying not to be disappointed that there are not many road races in upstate NY from now until Spring. I hope this isn't going to deter me from training. I'm going to try my best to continue running whenever I can and to change my schedule around so that I can accomplish this goal.
I am just proud of myself! Even in November I have run 50+ miles and that alone puts a smile on my face and keeps me motivated that I can do anything!
I look forward to what is in my running future!
