The Race

Monday, June 25, 2012

The race went very well, thank you all for asking!
I am a slow runner and my goal was to run under 35 minutes and I did it in 34:38 so I'm very happy. It was a gorgeous night, the longest day of the year and it's my favorite time of the year as well. My sister ran with me and so many others. This race is very popular and it was a lot of fun and I'm doing it again next year for sure.

I've already set another goal for myself. My next goal is to run 5k under 30 minutes and of course train for my 10k in August! I need to add interval training to my program, more speedwork and long runs every Sunday. I like running. This is my sport.

I have the same goal for 2012 - running a 5k in 30 min or less. And I'm running an all downhill 10k in Sept. I really need to get to work on distance; right now my long run is only 5 miles.
