I won a race for the first time in my life. (Read 1371 times)

    I won a 10k this weekend in 35:19.  This is the first race I have ever won.  I've been in the top 5 in a few races but never flat out won a race.  This was a PR for me in the 10k, granted I was a mid-d guy in college so I've only ran a hand full of 10k's, but I ran right on my goal pace of 5:40 per mile and felt like I had plenty in the tank at the finish and plan to run 15 miles today.  I feel my training is right on pace for my marathon in January. 

    2014 Goals:

    Not destroy my back while running.

                      Find some smaller races. At your speed, you'll place in most of them. Congrats!

                            I've never won.  Highest finish ever was 3rd overall this year.  I have held the lead in 2 races.  It is a very strange feeling pulling away but it didn't last.

                             

                            I need shorter races.   Angry

                              Sweet - 35:19 is a really nice 10k.

                               

                              I think you are ahead of pace for Ice Breaker.  I have run it a couple of times

                                Fun, ain't it?  My lone win was a small 5k, I even had a bicycle escort taking me through the course.  It's a very cool thing to experience.
