What a feeling! My first race couldnâ€™t have gone any better than it did. I completely demolished my goals, knocking out an 8.5min/mile average and shaving 1.5min off my predicted total time!Â I had a personal cheering section of friends around mile 1.75 with home-made signs that made me laugh and helped push me to go a bit faster after seeing them. Thanks guys!
My garmin watch was a little off with time/distance compared to the official results, but not by much. I know that I would have had no idea how fast I was running & probably wouldnâ€™t have pushed myself as hard without it.Â I am still beaming about my finish and canâ€™t wait for myÂ next race!
Distance: 4.0 miles, 6.4 Kilometers
Finish Time: 34:29
Overall Place: 1400 / 3759
Gender Place: 977Â / 1727
Age Place: 176 / 885
Isnâ€™t it an awesome feeling?
I think we should start a Tumblr running club.
Go Isaac! That is a kick-ass first race.
Meghan, I am totally in for a Tumblr running club. Who’s doing the 15K in Central Park this weekend?
