Today was race day. Usually on Saturday I get my long run in, but today was different. I signed up for a 5k race in my neighborhood. It’s only two miles away, so I figured instead of driving to the race, I’d run there.
So I took off and ran the two miles to the race in 18 min. Not too bad so far. Then came the race. Finished with a PR of 24:12!! I was under 8 mins a mile! It felt great!
I cooled down and chatted with friends both old and new, and then took off for home. It was a little slower 9:29 pace, but for a quick run, then a quick race, I’ll take an extra :30 per mile average. It was a great morning.
Here’s hoping everyone out there has a great weekend! Oh, and the new Vibram’s felt great!
Live healthy, be happy!
