Sunday, I ran the Race Against Extinction at Artesani Park in Allston, MA. The crowd was small and I felt pressure to keep up with them. I didn't want to come in last! I ran it in 38.24, which is about 12.5 minute miles. SLOW. I want to do at least 10 min miles.
Also - I WANT TO RUN A HALF MARATHON. At first, I wanted to do one because Heather did one, and I thought - if she can do it, I can too, and it was a bit of a competitive thing. Then, I thought, that's not a good reason to want to do one, grow up. Ultimately, I've come back to this spot - wanting to run one - since EVERY TIME someone I know says they are running one or did run one, I get jealous! I want to do it. I want to feel that sense of accomplishment. Mostly - I want to be that in shape and be able to run that far!!
So, the goals here are:
- Run a few more 5k's ; try to get to 10min miles
- Run a 10k
- Run a half marathon
- Look and feel better
