You Don't Have To Race To Be A Runner

Ok.... just gonna toss this out there... if you aren't currently running races / participating in organized events, it does NOT make you any less of a runner or athlete. This past year has definitely been a whirlwind of a year with injuries and health related issues for me. But because of my experiences, it's also changed my perspective on a lot of things.

5 Mile Run in Running Class


The goal for the day was 5 miles this morning. Sluggish doesn't even begin to describe the morning. I had a hard time staying awake on the drive to get to the River Front. I was so glad that I was meeting up with some other runners - otherwise I think today might would have been more of a walk than a run. One issue with early morning runs is time constraints. We all have to make it back by a certain time to make it home on time.

When we made it back to the studio, I was at 4.6 so I ran a couple of blocks to get my 5 miles in. Actually I went a little farther because on one loop my garmin hadn't been started back.

Good mile splits this morning. The last mile was slower, but partly because of crossing streets and having to stop/start - Mile 1 ~ 11:26, Mile 2 ~ 11:24, Mile 3 ~ 10:28, Mile 4 ~ 10:05, Mile 5 ~ 10:59

Today was my fastest pace for a longer distance. I was glad I had someone with me to help push me. I am really glad that I signed up for this running class.
