I am trying to qualify again in April at the IL marathon! I am working with a coach this time and have improved pretty significantly in just 5 weeks of working with him. Yesterday I ran a 10K in 48:50 and below are my other times since working with him:
11-10-12 Beat Beethoven 5K 24:20( 7:36 pace) 3rd female overall
11-17-12 North Face Endurance Challenge Half Marathon Kansas City, MO 1:51 29 seconds away from an age group award! 4th in my age group out of 42, 64th female out of 493, 183 out of 841 overall. This was the hilliest toughest course I have ever been on! I think I could have gone sub 1:50 on a flatter course.
When I first stared working with him I gave him all my historical times even pre-masters and he thinks I have the potential to run sub 3:50. We shall see. Let's keep in touch! Karen
