How did I do against the goals I shared in February?
1. Finish – check!
2. Run 11 minute miles – a bit slower…more like 12 minute miles
3. Feel good when I’m done – I’d say the pictures speak for themselves!
A behind the scenes look at the jump shoot:
I can jump, but I can’t walk.
Photos from the race:
Thank you to my friends for their support before and during the race! A special thanks to Abby and Tony for watching me finish and Colette for accompanying Beefy on race day. An extra, extra special thanks to Beefy for supporting me during my training and spending his second rainy Pig bouncing around the race course to cheer me on.
My next fitness goal is to run a half marathon in less than 2 hours…maybe even 1 hour 57 minutes. After I recover from this run, I’ll start speed drills, plyometrics, and strength training. I will discontinue regular Sweaty Sunday posts, but I will definitely still be sweating!
