|Foggy start ... in August???|
As far as other races go, I have the Kansas City Royals 5K this weekend with Madi and her boyfriend Nate. I really want to PR in this one and think I should be close ... but it will be tough. Last year I finished 8th overall out of about 800 people, which was one of my best races ever. I also PR'd with a 6:03/mile pace and I really want to be under 6:00/mile this year. If I can get my 5K PR under 6:00/mile, I'll probably call that good and quit trying to get faster for short races. I mean, I'm not getting any younger! We'll see I guess.
I also have a marathon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on 9/11/11 - about 3 weeks away. I really want to run between 3:10 & 3:15, and think I should be able to ... but if I don't, I'm not gonna stress about it. The big goal for the rest of this year is completing the back-to-backers. Everything else is just a bonus.
Hopefully I'll get some good fast runs in mid-week. I'll be able to tell from those if I'm gonna PR in either of these races coming up. Have a great week and stay healthy!!!
... be great today!
