Run of the Mill 5K
I am happy to say that I PR'ed at 24:20 - my goal was to finish in under 26:00 so I CRUSHED my goal. There is no greater feeling than crossing the finish line at races with a PR. The guy behind me in the blue hat actually came up to me after the race and said "Great Race - and Great Pace!" He said he was following me the whole way and was using me as his pacer. My pace was in the 7:50 range. My first mile was 7:35 ( fastest mile I've ever run). Followed by an 8:05 / mile
The right pictures were taken by my husband and the right picture was me getting a glimpse of my two cutie pies watching mama run past them! On the way back they came out and gave me high fives!
This race is one I will remember for while and is going on my PR chalkboard. ( I don't have a PR chalk board yet ) But Pinterest gives me great ideas and I have a crafty husband who will hopefully make me one! :) Maybe I'll get a picture of that up soon.
Next up: 10K Saturday, Sept. 20th. at the Walker North Country Marathon!!
