This budget race did its job. I went out and ran this morning and if it weren't for me having the race on my calendar I probably wouldn't have. My allergies were acting up, it was a chilly 38 degrees and Jake had a baseball game starting later in the morning.
But run I did and I am so glad for it, because not only was I able to beat my target time of 37:00 minutes, but I hit a personal record completely the 3.1 miles in 33:59 minutes. This may still seem slow to some but for me to see the progress I have made in my running over the last 3 months was very rewarding. It felt good to push myself, give it 110% and see results.
And speaking of results, guess who fit in her size 6 jeans from Old Navy that I couldn't have hoped to button and zip at the beginning of winter?
Yes folks, progress indeed.
