In the excitement of the last few days (Book deal! Quitting my job!), I totally forgot that I’m running a 15K race tomorrow!
Miracle Miles is my FAVORITE race to run. This will be my 3rd year running "MM." I love the distance (9.3 miles) and I love the fact that it’s at the beginning of race season.
In 2007, I ran MM for the first time. It was the longest distance I had ever run!
I felt super accomplished at the end!
I crossed the finish line in 1:33:12, just over a 10-minute/mile pace.
This was before Meghann got really fast. We ran together for most of the run and then I actually ending up beating her. That never happens anymore, so I just wanted to remind everyone that at one point, I could actually beat Meghann. Just had to throw that out there! 🙂
I crossed the finish line in 1:27:15, improving 2007’s time by almost FIVE MINUTES!
A few months later, I ran another 15K (Gasparilla Race Recap) and set a new 15K PR (personal record) of 1:23:30.
This year, I’m hoping to set another 15K PR. This is the first time this season that I’m gunning for a PR. My goal is to run it in sub 1:21, which will put me at a 9:00-minute/mile pace.
When I decide I’m going to try to PR at a race, I get very, very focused. Tomorrow is NO JOKE. I plan to have fun, of course, but when we line up at that starting line, I’m going to be all business. I take my records very seriously. 🙂
I pulled together my 15K Race Playlist today:
There are some songs that repeat, but that’s because they are my POWER SONGS and I need them to push me through!
Lunch was fabulous:
Black bean soup, a pita, and hummus.
Things to do:
Walk Work Laundry
- Grocery store
- Conference call with Zesty
- Physics homework (ugh)
- Dinner with Family
- Packet pick-up for the race!
