Running Victories!

Anytime I feel sad or like I have lost myself in my sorrow, I try to remind myself that I have a lot for which to be thankful. I have an awesome husband and two terrific doggies who love me no matter what. And I also happen to have a lot of running "victories" under my (fuel) belt :) Brag time!!

Personal Records (PRs)
1 Mile 6:30 - September 22, 2012 at the NYRR Fifth Avenue Mile. I wasn't really trained for speed at this particular event, but I figured I'd just warm up and give it my best shot. I'm looking forward to smashing this PR in the future :D

5K 21:47 - January 1, 2013 at the local 'Hangover Run.' It was freezing cold, yet I lined up wearing a tank top and arm warmers, ready to drop the hammer.

10K ?? - I've never officially raced a 10K. I think my fastest 10K during a race was actually the last 10K of the Bucks County Marathon. That was an awesome race :D

Half Marathon 1:45:39 - January 27, 2013 at the NYRR Manhattan Half Marathon. Another cold race on the rolling hills of Central Park. It was a great race, and a time I know I can improve upon in the future.

Full Marathon 3:42:54 - March 17, 2013 at the Shamrock Marathon. This was a dream come true... the literal blood, sweat and tears it took to break 4 hours are uncountable. After three years of dedicated training and eight attempts, I finally met my goal on this unforgettable day. I still get chills down my spine when I think about crossing the finish line.
