What better way to start off the new year than with a 5k? Worked for me last year didn’t it?
This year I started it off with a friend, it was M’s 3rd race and her first timed one. I helped with motivation and pacing and on this course which is pretty much uphill turn around then down hill, she hit a few new PRs:
Fastest Mile: 12:44 (ever including training runs with me)
Fastest 5k: 41:20
I’m so stinking proud of Her! Not only did she achieve those 2 PRs but she also ran the first mile (which included the frist major incline) without stopping! We have been training to run 3/4 a mile and walk 1/4 a mile. I don’t think we walked a full 1/4 of a mile the whole time!
What a fun and COLD way to start the new year!
