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

          She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

            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.
