Big Race Rundown


So this Saturday I ran my first race in AGES. It didn’t go as great as I had originally planned, but I was fairly satisfied nonetheless.

You see, I was super sick before leaving for Disney last weekend, and the week leading up to the race, I was just trying to get some proper rest. So I hadn’t run in about 2 weeks. Not a great way to go into any race.

I still managed to run all 5 miles without walking, and I finished in 54:27, according to the roster. Not too shabby considering how craptastic I felt while I was running.

It was a humid morning, and it took my until about mile 3 to really hit my stride. Today, as I’m writing this, my legs are still incredibly sore, but I’m proud to have run the race through to the end.

Now that I know I can do a full 5 miles, that puts my SIGNIFICANTLY closer to my 13 mile (half marathon) goal.

  1. Wow, well done on running the lot without walking. It’s amazing how quickly you can loose your peak when you have to take time off. And look at it this way, you’re nearly half way to running the half-marathon!

    Me, I’m just impressed I can run for three minutes without stopping. I have a long way to go!
