So let's be honest for a moment. I have not been running like I should have been to meet my goal of 59 minutes for this 10k. In fact, as of the morning of that run, my revised goal was to finish the race without walking any part of it. Well, I was successful in not walking it and it was pretty easy to keep my mind off of how much I wanted to die by listening to the bands and spectators cheering us on along the way. That has to be my favorite part of this run. There are so many great groups that come out to cheer on the runners and it is a really fun atmosphere.
Even though I didn't make my original goal time, I did finish the race with an overall 9:45 minute/mile. I was kind of excited about that until I realized that I finished one second after my finish time for the Turkey Trot 10k I ran last November. One second?? Ugh. Oh well, I guess I can still bask in the glory of beating my dad and my two brothers :)
Have you ever missed a PR by one second?
