Run for Help: 5K Against Domestic Violence


Well, I didn’t get my 3 practices runs in this week.  I only did one on Tuesday but decided to race anyway.

It was a beautiful sunny day.  But not perfect condition for a PR : ran the first mile too fast (about 9 min), hilly (not steep but persistent) course, didn’t get a drink of water at mile 2 and they ran out at mile 3.  As a result, I walked several times especially during the last mile and had no gas to finish strong.

So how did I finish it in 31 minutes?  It was my fastest this year.  Faster than the 3 races where I didn’t walk at all and felt strong throughout especially at the end of the race.  Go figure!

My next race is not until August 1.  I need to motivate myself to run.

My goal is to some day finish in the top 3 in my age group.  I think I was 5th in this race and 64th out of almost 200.
