My 10K PR 40:18
Sunday, June 07, 2009
My husband and I ran the Sunburst 10K this weekend. The weather was perfect for race day! This is by far one of the best finish one could ask for in any race. You get to run into the Notre Dame Football stadium. It's such an awesome feeling finishing on the ND football stadium. I started out pretty strong right in second place for the women. I knew I needed to find my pace and not run the 1st place girl otherwise I might not finish. I found my pace I knew I could stay at so I only had two more girls pass me up. The 3rd girl that passed me I was hoping to catch at the end. She even stopped and walked after one of the hills and I thought I should be able to beat her. Well, she ended up passing me again. I tried to stay on her tail so I could pass her towards the end. My plan did not work, but I did run my PR at 40:18 placing 4th overall for the women and 39 total out of over 1,000 people. Maybe next time I will be able to get that 3rd place or better yet 1st! I just need to set my mind and train just a little harder. Either way it's a great feeling running a race and know that you did your best and that's what matters!!!
