Post Governor's Village 5K

Another race down, another PR set!

That's right.

The nasty, humid weather and rolling hills couldn't stop me this week. I may have thought 100 different times during the race about how much I dislike running and I was going to be ok with a terrible time and how I was never going to run another warm weather race again but I ended up with another PR.


I'm ok with that.

The biggest thing about this race is that it was full of people who didn't run on a regular basis. I kept getting passed by the same people the entire race. While I was working on maintaining a steady pace throughout the race, there were some people who would sprint their little hearts out and then slow down to a walk. I'd pass them and then they would come sprinting past me a minute later. This repeated over and over throughout the entire race.

Did I mention that the last mile of the race was all up a slow, gradual hill? Yeah. That was fun.

I didn't get under 29 minutes like I wanted to, but I was so close! I rounded the corner to the finish line in the parking lot and saw the clock reading 28:52. Seriously? I sprinted as fast as I could towards the finish line but crossed at 29:07 {29:05 chip time}.


As always, I was more concerned about my watch than where I was going once I hit the finish line.

Final Results
Time - 29:05
Pace - 9:21/mile
Age Group - 11/37
Overall - 118/481

  3. Congrats on the new PR! Let me tell you- the sprint/walkers are my arch nemesis in races. I know they are getting a great workout in, but it makes me CRAZY to see someone pass me time and time again!
