Just an easy 3 miles
That is what I told myself as I lined up for the Race for Education 5k this afternoon at 2. No hard run, no personal best, just finish without puking. I signed up for this race last week because it is along the route I ran all summer. My father-in-law lives along the route. And it seemed like it would be an easy way to get my weekend miles.
I smoked it.
38:15. A personal record and a full minute better than my last race, which was my previous personal best.
319 out of about 642 overall. 142 in women. And 28 of 57 in my age group. Firmly in the middle of the pack which makes me very happy.
