new pr!

I joined a Goofy's Race & A Half Challenge facebook group. It doesn't seem very active right now, which I understand, because it's 335 days until the next Disney Marathon weekend. Duh. But still... I am going to look elsewhere to find a big group of running supporters. I wish I had more time in my life so that I could spend more time looking for support group people... then, after I find a great support group, I could find the time to actually be an active group member.

haha I definitely sound like a Psychology major, looking for support groups and whatnot. Maybe I should stop yammering about it.

Great run tonight! My first mile was actually not too bad.. it went well! The first mile always is the worst for me and usually sets the pace for the rest of the run. I set a PR tonight- 8.57142 minute miles. That sounds slow, but it's huge for me. I might be really sore tomorrow. Good thing tomorrow is my running day off. ha.

Okay. Exhausted. I'll return on Saturday. :)

Goal: 1000 miles/365 days
So far: 178.17 miles/88 days
To go: 821.83 miles/277 days


  1. I don't think that sounds slow. I think that's a really good average. If you averaged that for a half marathon it'd take you less than 2 hours. That's not slow. Now you just need to be able to maintain a speed like that for a longer period of time. I agree. Good thing your running day off is tomorrow. I guess I will stop hasseling you about stretching. It's your body and all...I just want the best for you.

  2. It didn't feel that impressive until I figured out that it was 8.57 minute miles. That's pretty incredible. You can harass me about stretching if you want. It IS important. I often forget about it, even if I intend to stretch.

  3. I just got caught up on your blog postings for the week -- I'm very happy for your accomplishments this week and proud of you. I heard you got a lot of snow so I hope that doesn't slow down your progress too much -- don't take chances if it's too bad out there. Nana
