I moved 2 inches of snow off the driveway this morning and half thought about going back to bed. It was 7:30 am and hanging around 30 degrees. My run was supposed to start at 9:30 and I was looking for a reason not to go. I sucked it up, put on the Winter gear and drove to Cleveland. My thinking was all the smart fast runners would stay home so it made sense for me to go. 🙂
I have been training in the cold the past few months so the weather didn’t phase me. I finished in 27:30 with an 8:56 average. I just got the official results and I was 4th in my age group and 54th out of 209 (clearly the fast people stayed in bed). I also set personal records for my 1/2 mile, 1 mile and 2 mile splits. I thought I had my fastest 5K, but missed it by less than 30 seconds. I am very happy with my results and that I’m getting faster in these organized runs.
I’m very happy with where I’m at in this fitness journey. I’m closing in on the 70 pound loss market. I’ve got about 15 pounds more I want to lose and they are proving to be the hardest, but I will get there. I had a blast today staying on tracking to work off a few more pounds.
Decide to dominate!
