Jingle Bell Run 5k

Thanks to some very generous people I was able to raise $410 for the Arthritis Foundation! I was thrilled about that; it was twice as much as I had hoped to raise.

My intentions for this race were to run hard, but not to the point of total exhaustion (I was going quadding in the afternoon). I like running for 5 minutes and then getting a 1 minute walk break, that seems to be working very well for me right now, so that’s what I did.

I ran my first mile in 10:15 (1 walk break), the second mile in 10:54 (2 walk breaks) and the last mile in 10:25 (2 walk breaks), and I hauled ass the last 0.1 mile (my Garmin shows it at 6 something per minute! lol)

The whole run came to 32: 18, a 10:26 min/mile pace. Not a PR, but a step in the right direction.

It was a very good run overall, I enjoyed it, it was actually more fun then when I ran it 3 years ago. For some reason I enjoy running in the streets of Columbus, and 3 miles seems like such a short distance now!

I am looking forward to next weeks “8 on the 8th”; it’s been a while since I have run that far.
