Third 5K This Year

So I did my 3rd 5K of the year. I didn't run at all last week. Too hot and then too busy so I said screw it. Plus I knew this was NOT going to be my best time since the race didn't start until 9am (right before the fair opened) and it was probably going to be hot.

Thankfully, the weather cooperated and guess what??? ALL TIME PERSONAL BEST RECORD!! Woo Hoo!!! I finally did a 5k UNDER 40 mins. And not just a little, almost 2 mins!! Yahoo!!! Here are the stats:

Bib: 851
Name: Heather
Gender: F
Age: 33
Overall: 451 out of 618
Women: 218 out of 351
F 30-34: 37 out of 55
Age/Grade: 38.80%
Place: 436
Finish: 38:20
Pace: 12:21
Tag Time: 38:20
Gun Time: 39:01

Wow. 38:20!! I knew I was doing good when I hit mile 1 and looked at my watch and I was doing a 12 min mile! =) I did walk a lot but I ran a lot too. No I'm excited to keep training and improving.

Congrats, before I came over to the US in 2000 I was a country (that is state in US) runner back in England doing 4 London marathons in costume etc.

Keep in there it gets better each race, and people you once finished behind use them as a target and in the next race you beat them
