>Racing>My 2nd Race ever Report
"I've been following Eddy's improvement over the last two years on this site, and it's been pretty dang solid. Sure the weekly mileage has been up and down, but over the long haul he's getting out the door and has turned himself into quite a runner. He's only now just figuring out his potential. Consistency in running is measured in years, not weeks. And over the last couple of years, Eddy's made great strides" Jeff 14 Jan 2009

Well done. Good job on the negative split, and way to gut it out the last mile!
Your feeling was natural, but your fastest times are yet ahead of you. Once_a_runner817 is correct--keep running and your times will improve.
BTW--did you do a warm-up run before the race?
You'll ruin your knees!

My warm up consisted of 5 mins easy runnning. I actually made the mistake of going out last night, I did an easy 8, so I dont know what effect this may hae had on my time.
