Trolley Run 2010
So, I have a secret. I have never once run an entire race without stopping to walk. Even if it's just a little bit, I've always walked some in every race. Until today. That's right! I ran straight through the 4 miles! I was so proud of myself. I knew I could do it, so I did.
I'm not in a particularly chatty mood, so I'm not going to detail the whole race, but I felt good. Nice and strong the whole race. My ankles hurt a little bit, but I think it was mostly because I was cold before the race started and didn't get totally stretched out. Other than that, all was good! I even beat last years time by nearly 2 minutes! I was hoping it would be faster, but I just need to accept the fact that I'm not a fast runner. And that's ok!
Here's the breakdown
Distance: 4 Miles
Division (Female/Age 25-29): 180/837
Now I just have to get ready for the Hospital Hill Half in June. On Friday after work I did 8.5 miles and while I had to walk a little, I did it and felt good! Just gotta keep going....
