I ran my second race ever on Sunday, the St. Patrick’s Day Human Race 8k. I finished in 38:53 (7:49 per mile)! I was shocked to go that fast, and it was a huge confidence boost. I think my technique must be working as I felt pretty good on the run. I’m excited at setting the bar higher and think I should have a good showing at the Stillwater Half Marathon.
Special thanks to the guys I hung with for the first two miles (at 8 min miles); and to the woman who ran the last mile with me. Her heavy breathing right behind me helped push me along. And then she passed me at the end and I had to really fight to keep up. Thanks.
