Update: Going solo

19 May

So I ran the race yesterday morning and I made my goal!! I ran the 6.2 miles in 62:36, which is about a 10:06 mile. I was shooting for 10:00s and was actually running sub-10s for the first 5.5 miles. But right at mile 5.5, there was a huge hill. Since I had been really pushing myself, I didn’t have much extra energy to get me up a hill. Plus, I couldn’t breathe. So I ran as much as I could up the hill and walked the rest. It was a great feeling anyway to run that far in that time–a PR for me in Colorado and in a race period–and I got a cool medal to boot!

Here I am:
