Ran the 10 Memorial Run in AF this morning and really enjoyed it!
Didn't sleep well the night before listening to all the rain and wondering if it was going to be raining in the morning. Normally I wouldn't worry so much but I was bringing along my 3 older kids to run the mile run and didn't want them to be cold. Luckily the rain stopped and the kids had a blast.
I really pushed myself on the run 1, because I wanted to see my kids run and 2, I wanted to see my kids run :).
My first 2 miles were 9:00 and could really feel it. I was kind of tired buy couldn't get myself to slow down. My 3rd mile was 9:40 and then I hit some down hill and pushed myself. I kept my miles between 9 and 10 min and felt good. My last mile was 8:30 and as I was coming into the finish I was able to see my kids take off for their race. That was really fun! I finished and got to see all my runners finish and that was the best!!
Ran my fastest race, but not sure I could pull off that pace for a whole half marathon!
My shins are really sore along with my ankles. I get the shins, but the ankles confuse me. They feel really tights.
Next race is the Hersey 5k and then the Timp Half Marathon.
