This past Sunday marked my fifth race in my first year ever of running. I am very excited about what I’ve accomplished. I never thought that I would be able to run a mile, let alone just over three, without stopping.
|1||5/15/10||Falcon 5K||Dale City, VA||37:01|
|2||7/11/10||Rainbow Falls 5K||San Francisco, CA||31:04|
|3||7/23/10||Crystal City Twilight 5K||Arlington, VA||37:44|
|4||12/5/10||South Berkeley Christmas Parade 5K||Inwood, WV||33:30*|
|1||6/19/10||Clarksburg 2 Mile||Clarksburg, WV||21:02|
This means that I have raced a (small) total of 14.4 miles in 2 hours 40 minutes and 21 seconds. My average pace is 11:13. My best pace was 9:59, and my worst was 12:09.
I have raced on the East and West coasts. I have raced flat routes and hilly ones. I have raced in the 100 degree heat of summer and the first flurry of winter.
I see lots of room for improvement, and so I look forward to breaking all my records next year with the help of my new running partner pictured below.
