So I ran in the Melissa's Road Race 22K this past weekend. I enjoyed the race. The temps were perfect. I ran well for the first 15K and then just self destructed. It was a PR time for me at this distance 2:22:32 and my 3rd Half-Marathon this year. I should be proud, so why do I feel so disappointed?
I wanted to hit a time of 2:15. Not a rocket fast pace for so many of the running blogs I read, but a goal none the less for this former overweight pseudo runner.
When I run a race, my two goals are not to be last and to finish the race. I always have a time in my head that I'd like to run, but usually don't share that time with anyone, in case I don't meet it. But maybe if
Now the next big question, do I keep training and run another half on Oct. 19th, MEC-Calgary Race Seven? Or do I try to PR at a shorter distance?
