|Pretty excited about the shirt:)|
|Chilling in the car and playing Angry Birds. It was cold out there!|
I am usually running right on time for races (also known as slightly late, but still making it to the starting line). For some reason, I managed to get to this one an hour and 20 minutes early. It was cold so I chilled (literally) in the car until it was Porta-Pottie time. I was worried how my legs were going to feel since it was cold and I had been sitting in the car for 45 minutes. I found some E-ville racers I knew and we took a lap around the park to get warmed up. Everything felt great, and we stayed loose with some Cupid Shuffle and Wobbling before the race finally started.
|Ready to Run!|
My main goal was to run well, with a sub goal of PR-ing (former PR was a 27:14 last November). My secret goal* was to break 27. When I saw the finish line around the corner I was at 26:13 so I booked it and made it under 27 (26:47)!!! I then tried not to puke on the chip cutting lady, but you'll have that...
|The official time was a 26:47, disregard the fact that my watch is somehow 5 hours slow.|
Speaking of speedwork, I found this on RunnersWorld.com and it made me laugh.
*Secret goal: the goal you kind of want to do in your head, but don't tell anyone because you don't think you will hit it but it will make you look kind of BA (in your mind anyway) if you do.
