First 15K Road Race (Read 721 times)

    I finished the Frostbite 15K Road Race in Raynham, MA yesterday. My goal was 1:25 and I finished in 1:21:48 so I'm pretty proud of myself. This was only my second road race and I do most of my running work on a treadmill, but I feel like I did pretty well for myself. It was a blast and I can't wait to do a couple more. -John

        That's fantastic. Well done you! That's a pretty impressive pace over 15K too and it's always nice to read positve experiences of races - I have my first in 4 days! Claire xxxx

            Thanks! Claire, I was never into running races until I did my first a little over a month ago and now I've got the bug. I'm still hurtin' today, but it's all good.
