Race for the Cure - October 11, 2008


Last weekend I did the Race for the Cure in downtown. I started training for it late this summer because I wanted to run the whole 5k without walking. I have done a bunch of 5k's and 10k's, but have never been able to run the entire thing - I have zero endurance. About 9 weeks into my training program I got really tired of running and got off schedule. I never fully got up to 3 miles....so I wasn't prepared to run the entire thing - but I was close. I am a very SLOW runner to start with (11:30 minute miles) but only walked for a total of about 5 minutes. My time was 37:30 - 5 minutes faster than my best time. Now I know what time to beat for next years Race!

Congrats! That's REALLY awesome. I had high hopes of running a 5K a few years ago, but two foot surgeries later, I have a good excuse not to run anymore, and I like biking better anyway.
Thanks for commenting on my blog!
