Then I headed to the race. This race is held by a hospital and is not scenic at all. To be honest, the only reason I run it is because it's for a good cause and so my boys can run the one mile race after the 5k. It's been a Thanksgiving tradition for the past 3 years.
After my one mile warm up, I made it to the start line. It's very, very congested at the start. It was hard to get a good pace til at least a quarter mile in.
My goal was to run an 8:30 pace and re-evaluate after the first mile. I kept an 8:30 average pace and ended up finishing in 26:32! This was a 19 second PR. I will take it. After that, my boys showed up to run.
This could be one of my favorite pictures ever. He set a PR too!
