My New PR is.........
This past weekend was excellent!
First of all-- it was the Allentown Arts Festival in Buffalo-- a big to-do here. It's a huge festival encompassing several city streets in Buffalo's Allentown neighborhood. I am not a HUGE art nut but you don't have to be-- there are PLENTY of house parties and I drank my fair share of fermented beverages and had an awesome time.
BUT-- I am burying the lead. This weekend was also the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k-- and as it is in many other cities-- it's also a huge event in Buffalo.
(Our Morning News Anchor Bridget and I)
I signed up with a team from work weeks ago. We were team HOBNOB ( our sports anchor came up with it-- it's a wine he likes)
and not only did I help out a great cause I also beat my best 5k time. Drum roll please.......
My old 5k pr: 22:50
My new time: 22:08!
The course was pretty flat and I flew through-- in fact-- I could not believe how easy it felt. I really like that all of this training, albeit scattered brain as it has been in my case, is paying off.
I am now trying to take one of my favorite blogger's (Brian, from a Runner's blog) lead and try "two a days". Running twice a day. To start off-- I will shoot for two-a-days twice a week... I will keep you posted.
