Saturday was another race day. I have been training for the Garmin half marathon. I really wanted a new pr on this one! I decided to start with the 1:50 pace group. I stayed right with them for the first couple of miles and then was feeling pretty good so went out just a bit ahead of them...which is where i stayed (about a minute or two ahead of them) for the rest of the run.
At 7 to 8 miles i was feeling good and thought about speeding up but was really nervous about pushing too hard and dying out at the end so i kept a pretty steady pace until the last two miles and then pushed a little faster to the finish line.
The finish line clock went crazy for all the photographers...it wouldn't let you take a picture...see, my time is 0!
My family was cheering for me here and i must have been real focused because i didn't even see them at this spot!
around 7-8 mile point
It was a very fun day! It's always a good day when you accomplish a goal! I took 7 minutes off my previous pr. Thank you God for keeping me feeling strong on race day! That was my prayer that morning.
Next up is some running over fire, climbing walls, crawling through mud...more fun times ahead!
