Day of the Dead Run

Saturday, October 29, 2011

Had a great race last weekend! I just checked the official time online, and I did it in 25:26.8!!!! That's taking more than five minutes off my time from the last 5k back in August! It was surprising for me to do that well, but I was really feeling it that morning. I had worked so hard the week before (67 hours of work), I only had time for one quick 20 minute run on Wednesday. So, I guess I was ready. I have been consistently running 3-4 times a week since my last 5k until that point. Just need to make sure to keep to my schedule and not let work get in the way of my running. I would like to improve my time and do more 5k races. I think my pace was a little fast in the beginning, I had trouble keeping it up. I'm going to try and do the first mile easy, step up the second mile to a pace that is passing other people but not too much effort. Then the third mile can be fast to the point where I'm really running across the finish line!

Anyway, this race was great fun, I got my face painted and got to see crazy people run in costumes. Check out the pictures!


That's CLALIZ next to me look all boney and me in the cool face-paint that smeared when I stopped for water.

Costume contest winners!

    You are a running STUD!! If you can do that well with 3 runs a week, imagine what you can do with some structure in your training. Go for it and let's shoot for under 23 minutes the next time. HOOAAA!!
