Woo Hoo Friends! Race #4 is in the books. The 3rd Annual YMCA Turkey Trot is done and I am proud to announce that this was my best race ever. I belong to the YMCA running club. I have been running with them for almost 2 years and while I don’t have the same level of commitment that many of the women do, knowing that I am committed to them every Tuesday night, makes me get there. I have been in the “slow” group for two years and I never get faster. However, I am making strides and proved that today.
I set my goal pace for 11:15 per mile with a finish under 35 minutes and guess what…
I buried that goal, got a personal record and finished at:
The race was actually just shy of 3.1 miles. Run Keeper (my favorite app) posted it at 3.03 but regardless that last .07 would have been less than a minute. For the first time, I totally feel that I will be able to beat that 30 minute window.
I get a little break from races till Thanksgiving day but I have added 2 more to end out the season. So I am looking at 3 more races before December 31, 2011. I start my Half-Marathon training on Monday.
Run Happy my friends!
