This was my second fastest time on this course!! I totally think I can get a PR next year. It was 21 degrees and I didn't have very high expectations for this race. Lots of traveling and missed days of running. But I think those few speed workouts I did a few weeks ago definitely helped.
I tried to just run a moderate pace for the first mile. We hit a slight downhill for the 2nd mile. I cheered on the Ballard girls. Hitting puke zone for the 3rd mile. Trying not to get passed by high school kids for the 4th mile. I was super excited to hit a sub 8:00mm. I left right away to get home to cook dinner.
