Ultra Trail Running Video Awesomeness!
Well I have been slackin, I have not posted in a long while but not because I have stopped training and not trying to staying in shape! Thanksgiving day I ran my first Half Marathon! By no means was I breaking any records but I planned on 2:45 finish time and I was 2:47! So I kept the pace I planned on and actually felt pretty good when I finished! I was plenty sore the days after, but I got out today for my first run since, a nice easy 3 miles! I owe my running “addiction” to Ben Davis and his amazing story. I ran my first 5k with him and a grassroots group in Atlanta and since then I have been hooked! Thanks Ben!!
In running, it doesn’t matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, ‘I have finished.’ There is a lot of satisfaction in that.
American Legion post 304 5k
Yesterday I ran my 3rd 5k. It was described as a flat fast course which was absolutely wrong! I think the flat meant the pavement didn’t have any bumps or cracks, and the fast was the last 100 yards to the finish line. But here is the good news, I beat my previous 5k time by three minutes!!! This was huge to me!!! 35:45! Next goal get closer or under 30:00!! Next race is in 3 weeks! BRING IT ON!!!!!
This will be my next 5k on Aug 6th! I am pumped! Can not believe that just 10 weeks ago when I started the Couch 2 5k program that I have ran one 5k and now about to run my second one! I am pumped!
