>Look What I Can Do!>So happy
It was race day today. My first race in 4 years of non running. I have been training hard for it and really wanted a PR. That would have required a run of under 30 min. I was hoping for a 29 min or maybe even a 28:30 at best.
Ran my ass off and it didn't feel like it all. I know I'll never make it to London but hell a 3 min reduction of my PR makes me one happy guy.
Thanks to all of you that gave me great advice. Apparently it worked.

So bittersweet,This tragedyWon't ask for absolution;This melody,Inside of me,Still searches for solution.A twist of faith,A change of heart Cures my infatuation.A broken heart, Provides the sparkFor my determination.

I was pretty happy taking 3 mins of a 5K. My next race is a 10K in September. I'm planning on setting a new PR there as well.
