Part 2 of Like a Doughnut on Fire... BONUS.... SPRINKLES for the POST RACE WRAP UP!!!
Beautiful, Sunny 60s weather under a Carolina blue sky for Sat am 5k.
Thanks Universe :)
I probably could have pushed out harder on parts and maybe finished a little faster. My own child in his 4.75 wisdom commented, "is Mommy going to beat anyone" I can vouch for people in front of me that were walking/running that finished ahead of me. But,
I wanted to finish in under 45 mins without a step of walking no matter how slow I was jogging.
Goal accomplished. A first PR of 40.15.
All plans for the Cary Road Race with the kids in the Family Fun Run in April and ....gulp....Warrior Dash in August and most likely something else in the fall.
Note to self that I need more outside runs, weekly if possible as it's so different than treadmill running.
Bigger Note to Self that training in the heat this summer is a must so I DO.NOT.DIE or have to be Medivac-ed out humiliating this team of insanity-driven ladies I'm joining. Summer training advice welcome.
You have to start somewhere so that you can acknowledge commitment and progress.
Here's to a great starting race, finish within my goal, support cheering at the end, and the sheer excitement of kicking part of Team #317 to the curb.
Sprinkles on top, you bet.
