5K PR (Read 1102 times)

IMKY13 finish!!

    I just set a new PR for a 5K this weekend. My goal was to break 26 minutes (my previous PR was 26:03), and I did the 5K in 25:41!!! My very first 5K was just over two years ago, and I have shaved 9 minutes off my 5K time. My first 5K was 34:42 back in September 2006. Next up: break 25 minutes!!!

                      This is one of many reasons that running is such a great sport, achieving a goal always gives you a new one. Great stuff, best of luck to you in the new year Paul.

                      May the road rise to meet you, may the wind be always at your back, may the sun shine warm upon your SPF30, may the rains fall soft upon your sweat-wicking hat, and until you hit the finish line may The Flying Spaghetti Monster hold you in the hollow of His Noodly Appendage.

                        Nice! Congrats, and keep on, keepin' on!!!! Smile

                        Just because running is simple does not mean it is easy.

                        On the road again...

                          Paul, Good job and congratulations. Paul

                          I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.
