My one year Race-iversary!

Saturday, August 25, 2012

This morning I ran a 5k at the local park. It is the same 5k I ran last year. My first 5k, in fact!

Last year I couldn't run the whole time but I did this year! Last year I finished in 39:40 or so but this year I think my time was around 31:47. So much difference a year makes!

I was really disappointed that I didn't make the 30 minute mark, but I averaged a 10 minute mile. And it's a new PR for me, so I am happy with that. This is actually one of the harder courses I have ran, with lots of hills and turns so I am sure I will get closer to 30 minutes soon.

I have some pictures but I will have to add those later.

    What a milestone! The fact that you are still running a year later is a big achievement. To have increased your speed is icing on the cake. You should be proud of yourself--I am! emoticon
