GF and I Both PR'd 5k! (Read 789 times)


    Last year we ran the same race in Scottsboro, Alabama: She got a 25:39 and I got a 19:38. It was her first race ever so I was really proud. Today we ran the same course( a little hilly because of some short sharp hills) and she came in at 23:59. Her only known mile split was 7:15 for the first(she didn't have a Garmin, and missed the second split). I came in at 18:39 w/ splits of: 5:43, 6:11, and 6:10. I came in second overall. Like some others we did more long slower runs than in the past. She's training for a half, and I am training for a full Marathon. It was nice to see results like that after not racing in a long time(since we did some marathons in the summer so a very long time).
